It had been rumored for some time that a possible return to Old Trafford could be in the works, but now it’s official.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be back for a second season with Manchester United, the club announced on Thursday.
The veteran Swedish strike re-joins the Red Devils on a one-year contract after having previously signed a similar deal last summer.
Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in all competitions under Jose Mourinho, before having his season cut short with a serious knee injury this April. The 35-year-old missed the end of last season, which included United’s UEFA Europa League title.Follow @MattReedFutbol
