“We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us,” manager, José Mourinho said.

The former Paris Saint-Germain forward says despite interests from other clubs, that he is back as he had an unfinished business with the club.
“I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay,” Ibrahimovic said.
“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,” he added.
The Swedish legend was linked with a move to Major League Soccer side, LA Galaxy, in the United States, but will now stay at United until the summer of 2018.
