£180k-p/w star aims to play for Man United soon as details emerge

With the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern having oh so much to shout about of late, they were in particularly good spirits yesterday.

The fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has officially returned to the club had our resident Red Devils dancing on the pool tables last night and reports from the Sun today have made them even happier!

According to their report, the superstar Swede has taken a HUGE pay cut to extend his stay at the Theatre of Dreams. The 35-year-old is believed to have been raking in a massive £376k-p/w last season, though is now thought to be on £180k-p/w after proving his fitness.

Ibra could still reportedly earn millions in bonuses throughout the course of the season and the forward is thought to be targeting a return to first-team action in October.

Though Romelu Lukaku certainly is impressing in his absence, the idea of him returning to help strengthen what looks like being a genuine title tilt in the second half of the season has seriously excited our United-mad punters.

Indeed, the fact he’s been so open to staying that he’s reportedly taking a cut has warmed the collective hearts of our drinkers.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

It’ll be interesting to see how Jose Mourinho plays both he and Lukaku when a full squad is available, though Ibrahimovic’s mere presence around the training ground will be hugely beneficial.

A truly wonderful player and another big signing.
