Crazy transfer season may be over. But when it’s Manchester United, it’s never over.
And this morning they are already being linked with moves to strengthen their team in January. And, alongside the regular names like Toby Alderweireld and Willian, was a surprise link to former United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic – who played at United from 2016 to earlier this year – has technically had two separate spells at the club as he wasn’t retained following the expiration of his original contract. He will be 37 when the turn of the year comes around, but the Sun believe his impressive form in the MLS means he will be given one more chance at Old Trafford.
From The Sun:
MANCHESTER UNITED could make a shock move to bring Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to Old Trafford as part of a mass recruitment drive in January, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho has already been linked with fresh bids for Toby Alderweireld and Willian after missing out on them this summer.The English transfer window closed on Thursday after United made just three signings.According to the Express, the Reds could be looking to bring Ibrahimovic back to Manchester following his impressive spell for LA Galaxy.
He even dropped into see his old team-mates during their pre-season tour of the United States last month.
Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals in 53 games for United before he decided to continue his career in the MLS.
The source suggests that United will continue their pursuit for Alderweireld and Willian in the New Year.
Mourinho was linked to the defender this summer after he failed to cement his spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
But the Reds failed to file an official bid for the 29-year-old, who is said to be interested in a switch to United.
Chelsea star Willian revealed earlier this week that he wants to play for the Portuguese boss again.
