Zlatan Ibrahimovic is nearing a return to action with Manchester United and is determined to win the Premier League, declaring: “I have come back to finish what I started.”
Ibrahimovic helped Untied to Community Shield, Europa League, and EFL Cup glory in his first season in Manchester but a serious knee ligament injury cut short an impressive campaign before the 36-year-old became a free agent.
After convincing manager Jose Mourinho and United’s hierarchy of his ability to return to full fitness, Ibrahimovic has returned on a one-year deal and the Swedish striker only has one thing on his mind.
“I said I have come back to finish what I started,” Ibrahimovic – tipped for a December comeback – told _Sky Sports _, with United second and five points adrift of leaders Manchester City heading into Saturday’s visit of Tottenham.
“Everything I built up in the first season – obviously we won the three trophies – the ending for me was not the ending I wanted, or nobody wanted, especially after how the season went.
“The target is the Premier League. That is my target to finish.”
