Ibrahimovic - OLORISUPERGAL

Manchester United have re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one-year contract.

The 35-year-old former Sweden striker made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for United last season but was released by the club in June after his season was ended prematurely by a knee injury.

According to the statement made on the club’s website, Ibrahimovic will wear the number 10 shirt which was previously worn by former captain, Wayne Rooney. He is expected to be fit again in December.

“After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return,” said manager Jose Mourinho

Ibrahimovic said: “I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay. I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready. I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.”

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