Manchester United make resigning Zlatan ‘a priority’

Manchester United have made resigning Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘a priority’ ahead of the January transfer window with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to add to his forward options.

The veteran forward is set to leave MLS side LA Galaxy at the expiry of his contract and is targeting a return to European football, having scored 53 goals in just 58 appearances since joining the club in 2018.

Manchester United have been left short of depth in attack following the summer departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan, with Solskjaer keen to bring additional firepower to his squad and believes a move for Ibrahimovic could well be the answer to the club’s current problems.

The 38-year-old previously spent a brief but successful two-year spell at Old Trafford prior to his switch to MLS, winning a League Cup and Europa League double under Jose Mourinho after joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the Express, Ibrahimovic is one of several targets currently being considered by the club ahead of the winter window, alongside Juventus forward Mario Manduzkic.

United are likely to face competition from several clubs across Europe for Ibrahimovic, however, with Italian side Napoli having already expressed their interest in bringing the former Juventus and AC Milan forward back to Serie A.
