Reports this weekend suggest that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to be unveiled as a Manchester United player, again. The Swede suffered what could have been a career ending injury in April when he did his meniscus and cruciate injury. Eyebrows were raised when this injury was confirmed given that Ibrahimovic didn’t even require a stretcher to leave the field. What sort of a machine was he?
Well, that question has been answered four months later, with him posting a video of himself kickboxing and showing no signs of injury.
Knee injury? What knee injury?

Last season he was our main man but this season that role goes to Romelu Lukaku. However, if United progress in the cup competitions, Ibrahimovic could be very useful. In the same way Sergio Romero shone in the Europa League in place of David de Gea, maybe Zlatan could be the same sort of player for us in the Champions League and domestic competitions.
Having a player with his influence and experience in the dressing room again could only be viewed as a positive though.
