He departed Manchester for America in March 2018 but could Zlatan Ibrahimovic be in line for a sensational return to Manchester United?
Former Man United ace Clayton Blackmore thinks so and the ex defender
“We’re lacking a target man and the only thing that is going to save us this season is Ibrahimovic.
“He has thrown his name in the hat and he’s probably the best target man you can have.
“He’s 6ft 5in, he’s a black belt and he fancies his chances against anybody.
“He’s still scoring goals, too. We have got rid of so many good strikers – (Wayne) Rooney went, (Robin) van Persie went, loads of them.
“These players have gone but they haven’t been replaced. Bringing Ibrahimovic in is a no-brainer.
“He doesn’t run, but he doesn’t need to because he is that good.
“There are not many players who can jog around the pitch and control the game, but, when he was here before, we won trophies with him, when he was fit.
“We should try and get him in January or whenever we can because he can lead the line.
“Getting (Robert) Lewandowski would be perfect, too. That’s obviously a big ask, but he’s also the kind of player the club needs. Yes, he’s a bit older, but he’s the kind of player that can help the kids.
“If we played someone up front alongside him, then the goals will come, I’ve no doubt about that.”
