Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been out since April but is edging closer to making his return to action according to reports.
The Swedish striker had an impressive debut season in English football scoring 28 goals in 46 appearances. However, his season was cut short after he suffered the knee ligament injury in United’s Europa League quarter final victory against Anderlecht six months ago. Since then, he has been working hard to return to first team action, and his hard work seems to be paying off.
According to Football365, Ibrahimovic has been turning up to United’s carrington training ground every two weeks for check ups on the injury, although those check ups will become daily in November as the striker edges towards his return.
They claim that United are hoping to bring Zlatan into the first team fold towards the end of November, with the aim of having him ready to start the match against Arsenal on December 2nd.
Whether he would be selected for that game is a different matter. Ibrahimovic’s replacement, Romelu Lukaku, has started the season in wonderful form, scoring 11 goals in his first 10 games for the Red Devils.
The Belgian has been told not to expect a rest until Ibrahimovic returns to action due to the lack of strikers at the club, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial being preferred as wingers.
