Almost done: Man United advance talks to sign 28-goal lethal finisher

Manchester United are making moves to bring Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to the club and according to journalist Gianluca Di Mario the club have started negotiations with the Swedish striker.

Signed on a free transfer from Paris-Saint Germain, Ibrahimovic was heavily involved as United landed the Community Shield and the EFL Cup and also played a key role in their Europa League title
challenge before his season-ending cruciate knee injury in the Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht.

His injury had prevented Man United from offering him a contract extension after his one-year contract with the club expired at the end of the last season, but they are now interested in having him back at the club.

Jose Mourinho saw the need to add more firepower upfront after his side defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup last night Marcus Rashford missed the chance to draw United level as they lost 1-2 Champions League winners.

Mourinho had said the former Inter Milan forward is close to joining the club and the 35-year-old was spotted with his agent Mino Ranoila in Manchester last night.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in all competition s for United last season and has intensified his efforts at regaining full fitness, possibly in a bid to be available in January.
