Manchester United have been given a big boost today with reports updating fans on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s fitness following injury setback.
The player joined from Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of last season on a one-year deal but ended up missing half of the season through injury.
Not only that, his ACL injury meant that he would be out until December just gone but Man United still handed him a new one-year deal.
Then, having returned in a few games, one being in the Carabao Cup against Bristol City, it was clear he needed more time.
That lead to Jose Mourinho claiming he needed a bit more time to get back up to fitness and he is yet to start another game since then.
Now, it looks as though the time has come for him to return to the team.
That is because the Daily Mail have claimed that the player is ‘close’ to returning.
They claim the ‘Swede believes he is fit enough to have an impact on United’s campaign and claim United’s progression in the Champions League is an important aspect of his final year here.’
With LA Galaxy favourites for his signature, reports today also claim that the player has been house hunting in LA.
While this could lead to nothing, it is certainly an indication that he is at least looking into that possibility.
