Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reported to be sticking around for a while and have set a return date to action which happens to be November with claims that he could still sign a short-term deal with the Red Devils.
The Sweden international was released at the end of his one-year agreement with United earlier this month as the club decided not to exercise the option to extend his playing contract by a further year following the serious ACL injury he sustained in May.
The forward's knee injury was expected to keep the superstar out of action until January 2018 at the earliest, when the player was expected to pen for LA Galaxy.
However, report in the Daily Star claims the former Barcelona and Juventus player is confronting medical science with resistance and is going ahead of schedule. The paper claims he could be back in action by as early as November, which they say, raises the possibility of Ibrahimovic signing a short-term deal with the club.
Ibrahimovic was spotted at one of United’s training grounds last Tuesday – Littleton Road in Salford – with his sons Maximillian and Vincent, who were training there where he told staff there he hopes to be fit in five months time.
United’s 28-goal top scorer from last season has already been granted permission by the club to do his rehabilitation at their main training complex at Carrington.
