Zlatan Ibrahimovic

English club Manchester United have re-signed striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer.

Ibrahimović, 35, made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for the club during the 2016/17 campaign before suffering a knee injury, which ended his season prematurely.

Zlatan has won championships in four different leagues since beginning his professional career with Malmo in 1999.

In an interview on the Man United website, Jose Mourinho said: “We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us. After his contribution last season, he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return. I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.”

The former PSG striker has amazed the Man United medics by his rapid progress from his injury and is now fully recovered and he is planning proper ball work in the next few weeks.

The Swedish international will wear the No. 10 shirt this season after the number 9 he wore last season was taken by Romelu Lukaku.
