Manchester United re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic on one-year deal

Published

The 35-year-old former Sweden striker made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for United last season.

Ibrahimovic was released by the club  in June after his season was ended prematurely by a knee injury, but he is expected to be fit again in December.

“After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return,” said manager Jose Mourinho.

Ibrahimovic, who initially joined the Red Devils on free transfer in July 2016, had been recuperating at United’s training ground after  knee surgery.

Mourinho added: “We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us.

“I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.”

Two Los Angeles-based Major League Soccer clubs, LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC, were both interested in signing the striker this summer.

However, Ibrahimovic said: “It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.”

He added: “I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready.

“I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.”

Ibrahimovic made his debut for hometown club Malmo in 1999 and went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG. He has won a trophy in every season since 2001, including 13 league titles.

He retired from international football after Sweden’s exit from Euro 2016, having scored 62 goals in 116 appearances.

What has he won?

Ajax: Eredivisie (2001-02, 2003-04), Dutch Cup (2002) Dutch Super Cup (2003)

Juventus: Serie A (2004-05, 2005-06) *Juve later stripped of titles

BREAKING: Vincent #Aboubakar Masterclass Performance Seals #Cameroon Come Back From 2 Goals Down Against #Serbia—-A tremendous game ended in a 3-3 draw, Serbia rebounding from a 1-0 deficit to take a 3-1 lead before Cameroon rushed back to level the match. Cameroon must now beat Brazil and hope, while a win over Switzerland should do it for Serbia.

With both sides needing a win, both went for it in an entertaining half, Serbia with the greater quality. But a well-taken corner earned Cameroon the lead, Jean-Charles Castelletto tapping home at the back post after a fine flick-on from Nicolas N’Koulou.

The setback knocked Serbia a little, but by the end of the 45, they were back in charge, scoring twice in six added minutes through Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to turn the game around and, when Aleksandr Mitrovic added a third on 53 minutes, the game looked over.

But almost immediately afterwards, Rigobert Song sent on Vincent Boubakar, who scored a glorious livener – disallowed, then allowed by VAR and the semi-automatic offside situation – then set up Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting for a tap-in at the end of a terrific counter.

A draw does little for both sides, but the World Cup now has a new best game.

For years, football has fiddled with its laws, but done nothing about its timekeeping. Now, though, the minutes added on at the end of halves reflect something of what has gone on during them, and the six allocated to the first period in this game made a significant different to the match, Serbia taking the opportunity to score twice.

The system is not perfect – there is no reason we shouldn’t be able to see the ref’s watch displayed in the ground and on screens, and no when it’s stopped and when it’s running. But proficiency in timewasting shouLd not be an essential part of a footballer’s armoury, and Fifa finally taking action in this aspect made a significant contribution to the best match of the World Cup so far.

BREAKING: #Chelsea Sells Christian #Pulisic To Premier League Rivals?

BREAKING: #Chelsea Sells Christian #Pulisic To Premier League Rivals?—-According to Mail report, Christian Pulisic has attracted the attention of multiple Premier League clubs after putting in a Player of the Match performance in United States’ 0-0 draw against England at the World Cup.

TGM gathered that Manchester United, Newcastle United and Arsenal all have Pulisic on their radars ahead of the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old has just 18 months remaining on his contract at Chelsea and the Blues are considering the possibility of cashing in on Pulisic before the summer. Chelsea have slapped a £35 million price tag on the former Borussia Dortmund star.

Pulisic’s £58 million transfer to Chelsea back in 2019 has not really worked out. The winger was rated very highly as a youngster at Dortmund, but he has failed to replicate that form at Stamford Bridge.

It’s quite similar to Hakim Ziyech’s situation at Chelsea too. The pair haven’t really managed to get a consistent run of games, but we are seeing them shine at the 2022 World Cup. Obviously, there’s a top-quality player in there so Chelsea should be careful about selling Pulisic to a Premier League rival.

BREAKING: Lionel #Messi Joins Inter Miami? – #FIFAWorldCup—–The Seven Time Ballon D’or Winner and Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi, is set for a stunning move to Inter Miami.

The MLS team is confident Messi will formalise a switch as a free agent to become the highest-paid player in the history of the sport in the US.

The 35-year-old is believed to be on a salary of around £1.2million-a-week and would take a pay cut at Inter, which is co-owned by ex-Real Madrid midfielder, David Beckham.

However, he would be by far the top earner the game in America has ever seen.

Messi has a home in Miami and is known to regularly holiday there.

The club are already trying to recruit other players who will fit with Messi’s style of play with former Barcelona team-mates Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas under consideration.

Inter Miami are managed by another former United player, Phil Neville, who has just signed a contract extension.

Messi’s current deal at PSG expires in June 2023.
