Manchester United made a fine transfer when they signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The striker’s antics were singlehandedly responsible for the club’s Europa League triumph under Jose Mourinho and marked one of the only occasions in the six years after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure that the club held a shade of their former arrogant attacking mojo.

It was unfortunate that the Swedish striker’s time at the Old Trafford outfit was cut short by a freak injury.

Upon recovery, LA Galaxy came knocking for his signature and since moving to the USA, Zlatan has netted 46 goals in 49 appearances.

Now, there is a chance that he’ll ply his trade for the Red Devils yet again.

Speaking recently about his immediate future, the BBC quotes Ibrahimović to have stated: “I could play easy in the Premier League, so if United needs me, I’m here. I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it, I have 33 trophies that I brought with me here and hopefully I can get something here. And then we will see where that adventure finishes.”

His present deal in the MLS expires in November, which means that he could technically rejoin Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad in November.

The Norwegian gaffer did state that their frontline is quite thin and the departure of Sanchez means that United will be at risk of stretching their options in the event of injury or fatigue.

As of such, Zlatan would be the ideal temporary fix till some of the side’s younger strikers get used to the Premier League.

The 37-year-old, who is still goal-happy, is still a viewer of the Premier League giants and added: “I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky. If they score the penalty it’s a different game, but a game in England is not finished until it’s finished. Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment.”
