Manchester United have begun talks over a new deal to bring back striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to Sky in Italy, manager Jose Mourinho is eager to have the 35-year-old back.

Ibrahimovic is a free agent following his release from Old Trafford at the end of last season and is battling back to fitness, after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April.

Mourinho confirmed last month, that he could resume at United despite Romelu Lukaku’s arrival.

“Why not wait for such a good player that gave us so much?” he said.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for the Red Devils before injury struck.

His agent, Mino Raiola, told Sky in May there had been offers from “many leagues” for the former PSG and Barcelona striker and that he would “remain in Europe 100 per cent”, adding he still had “one more year, maybe two” left in his career.
