Man Utd having conversations over Ibrahimovic return — Mourinho

12 Agosto 2017

Mourinho's Manchester United have an abundance of strikers in Martial, Rashford and new signing Lukaku but appears that the Portuguese manager is still considering adding to his ranks with Ibrahimovic likely to return to Old Trafford despite injury concerns.

The Red Devils will start their Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

The 35-year-old free agent, who scored 28 goals for the club last season, is battling back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April, though, and Mourinho insisted there is no rush to get a deal done.

Meanwhile, New £75 million striker Romelu Lukaku has taken the Swede's No. 9 shirt.

Defeat by Real Madrid in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup match in Skopje was a setback, but Mourinho says his team are ready for the new season.

"But he's still a very good player to sit in front of the back four, do the simple things, pass the ball - he's good at what he does".

Manchester United face competition from AC Milan as they continue their efforts to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract, according to the Telegraph's James Ducker. I understand by doing 75 percent of what I asked, the club did very well.

Moreover, Zlatan will go out to the pitch not earlier of 2018.

"Between the players we have lost and the players we have got, I think we are in a similar situation but with more experience of working together and a much better pre-season. I am not in a position to say I am not happy with". It's not something urgent, it's nothing that you are desperate to have it done or not done.

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying". If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive, I will not moan. "We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides".

"It was certainly a position that Manchester United as a team needed to strengthen, and they've gone and done it with Matic".

"He thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season".
