Zlatan Ibramovic training hard ahead of Manchester United return

Wilson has been recovering from cruciate ligament injury and has not played for United since October 2015; he returned in a Premier League 2 game last month.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is excited about having the opportunity to team up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the Belgian indicating that the Red Devils need someone with his mindset.

Watch as Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirms his return to Manchester United and the reasons behind his decision.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in all competitions last season.

"I already knew for a while that Zlatan would sign but I didn't tell anyone", Lukaku told reporters (via Manchester Evening News) following his hat-trick for Belgium in their 9-0 World Cup qualifying win over Gibraltar on Thursday night.


"He will get better through the season as I think he understands this club is all about winning".

There is doubt the 35-year-old will play again in 2017 but manager Mourinho's decision to include him in his European squad - which was not unexpected - would improve United's options should he return ahead of schedule. "And with him we are looking to do something special", Lukaku explained.

Spurs, who begin their Champions League campaign against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday, have included Fernando Llorente in their 21-man squad following the Spanish striker's move from Swansea City for around £14m on deadline day.

Cole is also cautious about proclaiming United as Premier League favourites given the competitive nature of this season's title race, despite his delight at their strong start.

"I think Zlatan will bring us a lot".
