Ibrahimovic re-signs with Manchester United

Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back at Manchester United, signing a one-year deal with the English powerhouse.

Ibrahimovic has re-signed with the club, rejecting lucrative offers from Europe and the MLS four months after he had his first season with the Red Devils cut short due to a serious knee injury.

The 35-year-old has reportedly taken almost a 50 percent pay cut to re-join the side a second season.

“I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay,” Ibrahimovic said.

“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 scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for Untied last season.
