Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival at Manchester United is imminent after Adidas dropped major hint. 

Ibrahimovic has stunned the football world after making an early comeback from his horrific injury back in April. The player, who was earlier ruled out for whole of 2017, is already kicking punching bags as he nears full fitness.

Zlatan’s quick recovery has changed Jose Mourinho’s mind about the player, who had released the player in June. Mourinho is now keen to welcome his favorite striker back at Old Trafford.

Adidas’ US website has many Manchester United fans believing that the Swede is on the verge of returning. The website has put United’s no.10 shirt on sale, which is believed to be the new shirt number for Zlatan.

Ibrahimovic took no.9 Jersey from Martial last summer, but Lukaku will keep his no. 9, according to the website.



No.10 jersey is available at Old Trafford since Rooney’s move to Everton, and now, Zlatan is touted to wear the iconic number. Adidas US is showing no.10 jersey with both Rooney and Ibrahimovic’s names as of now. Moreover, Eric Bailly has also almost confirmed Zlatan’s return in his Instagram post.


It’s a certainty that if Zlatan was to return to Manchester United, he won’t be able to before December end. The Red Devils are not looking to give him a contract before he proves his full fitness. The forward is expected to be signed as a free agent in the January transfer window.
