BREAKING : Zlatan Ibrahimovic signs new contract!

This is the extract from Manchester United’s official website confirming his contract renewal

“Manchester United is delighted to announce that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will continue his journey with the club and has signed a one-year contract. He will wear the number 10 shirt.

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.

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.”

Zlatan 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.”

Zlatan adds to a potent looking strike force. It is unlikely that Mourinho will switch to two strikers up front which means either one of Lukaku or Zlatan is most likely to have to sit out games. Zlatan will bring his experience and unquestionable skill back to Manchester where he definitely has unfinished business. Reports suggest he is still 2 months away from full fitness and is targeting the match against Tottenham on 28th October as his return.

The one trophy that has always eluded the Swedish Striker is the UEFA Champions League. Having won the Europa League with Manchester last year, Zlatan will be eager to finally get the one trophy his illustrious career deserves. His ability to help younger forwards like Rashford and Martial will be invaluable to their careers and development. The biggest positive for United is that even though Zlatan is technically a new signing, he is already well integrated into this team. He is the sort of signing that could propel United to go the distance in the Champions League and Premier League.
