Zlatan Ibrahimovic signs new one-year contract with Man United

Frank de Boer Crystal Palace Swansea City

After being released by the club in June, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a new one-year deal with the club owing to his speedy recovery from injury, as confirmed by the club in an official statement.

But Ibrahimovic's return would provide a welcome boost for the second half of the season where United will be hoping to compete on several fronts.

We round up the latest Manchester United transfers rumours from around the British and European press on Thursday, August 24.

Ibrahimovic himself said: "I am back to finish what I started".

"I can not 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".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he was "delighted" to have the former Barcelona and PSG striker back at the club.


And despite deciding to let Ibrahimovic go, they were always open to the possibility of him returning if he could prove his fitness. "He will wear the number 10 shirt".

Marcos Rojo, who suffered a less severe knee ligament injury in the same game against Anderlecht, returned to training with the first team on Tuesday. He was on crutches during United's victory over Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm.

The 35-year-old former Sweden striker made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for United last season.

The former Sweden worldwide is United's fourth acquisition of the transfer window, following the arrivals of compatriot Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku, who took the number nine shirt worn by Ibrahimovic last term.

Meanwhile, Ashley Young has promised to prove that he still has a major role to play at United, says the Daily Express.
