In a statement released by the club, they confirmed that the Swede would wear the no.10 shirt this season after he signed a one year contract.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for the club last season only for his time at Manchester to come to an abrupt end after suffering a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in the Europa League.

As per the club's website, Zlatan said:

"I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club's intention for me to stay. 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."
