In a wonderful turn of events Manchester United have re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic for one more year at Old Trafford. Manchester United on Thursday announced that Zlatan will continue from where he left off last season and has re-signed with the club. He will don the no.10 shirt for Manchester United.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic initially signed for Manchester United last season on a free transfer from Paris Saint Germain. It proved to be a bargain for the club as he helped Manchester United win three trophies – UEFA Europa League, Community Shield and League Cup. Working with Manchester United was dream come true for the Swede, since he had always cherished the possibility of working under Jose Mourinho. The 35 year old scored 28 goals from 46 appearances before his fairy tale run was marred by a lingament injury.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic brings 18 years of professional football experience and winning mentality along with him. Although it was expected Manchester United would sign him, doubts were raised when he got injured last season. But he once again proved with his special powers and hardwork that no injury is bigger than his dream of winning the Premier League title with Manchester United and playing in the Champions League yet again. Unlike last season, Manchester United have made some quality additions in the form of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in the path of recovery and has already started training. Zlatan would hope that he recovers early and get playing once again for Manchester United. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho couldn’t hide the excitement for the re-signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He added, “We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us. After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic said after re-signing for Manchester United, “I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay. 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.”
