Mourinho Confirms Talks For Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Manchester United is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about the striker playing again for the club.

Ibrahimovic signed a one-year deal in July 2016 and scored 28 times in 46 games in all competitions for United before suffering knee-ligament damage in April in the Europa League win over Anderlecht.

Having signed on a one-year deal, the Swede was subsequently released in the summer as United were not prepared to continue paying a hefty salary to a player they couldn't use; however, there was always the suggestion that he would sign a short term deal once he proved his fitness, and the United manager confirmed that there have been conversations.

"He's injured and he needs time to recover", Mourinho said on Friday. 'He is not ready to play tomorrow.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation".

"He likes me a lot and I like him a lot as a coach and as a person".

"So I don't think I am in a position of crying, of moaning, of protesting".

Part of the delay has been Inter Milan's reluctance to sell Ivan Perisic, while speculation has recently grown over a move for Paris St Germain defender Serge Aurier and Tottenham left-back Danny Rose.

United triumphed 2-0 over Ajax in the Europa League final to claim the trophy for the first time and secure a return to the Champions League.

If United are to be serious title contenders, being more clinical at Old Trafford should be a priority for Mourinho, starting with the home match against the Hammers. "I would say seven teams fight for the title and 20 to fight for victory every match".

"The Premier League is what you all know", he said.

"This is the Premier League, different from any one of the other leagues and I worked in three other leagues apart from the English one".
