Zlatan Ibrahimovic signs new one-year deal with Manchester United - 3 years ago
Manchester United have re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one-year deal. The Swedish superstar joined United in 2016, scoring 28 goals last season as he led the side to League Cup and Europa League glory, and claims he is 'back to finish what he started'. 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. The 35-year-old had been expected to miss the remainder of 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 takes the No.10 shirt 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. "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.
