The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were surprised when Jose Mourinho revealed earlier this month that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could yet return to Old Trafford…
Of course, it was widely accepted that the Swede had played his last game for the Red Devils when he suffered a season-ending injury – of which he is still recovering from. He only signed a one year deal with Man Utd, and given that it expired at the end of June, a move away was presumed.
Now, however, Mourinho’s comments have left the door open for a return, and according to one Man Utd player at least, it’s a prospect that is exciting to those who have become used to play alongside him.
Speaking to NBC Sports, Daley Blind has revealed that he would like to see Ibrahimovic back in red.
Questioned on whether he wants to see Zlatan return, he said: “Yeah, of course. No doubt he would again be another big signing…He is still a great player and great person and he makes everything better”.
Ibrahimovic enjoyed a stellar first season in the Premier League, bagging a remarkable 17 league goals during a campaign in which the Red Devils largely struggled domestically. They were only able to secure Champions League football for next season by winning the Europa League, with a 6th place finish not enough to earn that right through conventional means.
Next season, though, the fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a much better showing, and Ibrahimovic would certainly help to make their season better should he return.
