According to ESPN, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is considering bringing Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.
The veteran superstar striker last turned out for the Red Devils last season and netted 29 goals in 53 appearances for the Premier League giants in all competitions during his time in England. Now, potentially, the 37-year-old could be set for another spell with the club.
For many years the former Sweden international was amongst the finest forwards in world football, but at his age it would be a huge ask for him to return to the English top flight. As exciting and enthralling as the 6’5” striker is, this rumour, if true, smacks of desperation on Mourinho’s part.

When he ought to be figuring out how to get the best out of young stars such as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, bringing back Ibrahimovic would represent a backward step.
What do you think, United fans – would you be in favour of an Ibrahimovic return?
