Manchester United have re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one-year deal in what looks like a “Second Missionary Return” after United refused to renew his contract due to the injury which he sustained during his first season at Old Trafford .
The former Barcelona forward came to Old Trafford in 2016 after leaving the French giants Paris Saint-German.He scored 28 goals last season and played significant role in helping his side to lift the League Cup and Europa League glory.
Mirror Sport quoted Zlatan to say he is ‘back to finish what he started’.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s deal had an option of a one-year extension, but after he suffered a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in April both sides opted to separate as he focused on his recovery.
Based on the outcome of the injury, the 35-year-old had been expected to miss the remainder of 2017 but following a remarkable recovery from the injury, he could be back before the end of October 2017.
But now Ibrahimovic has agreed a new deal to return to Old Trafford until the end of the season, after a remarkable recovery means he could be back in action before the end of October.
Ibrahimovic, who will now take theshirt vacated by Wayne Rooney, said: “I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.
