It’s been a wonderful start to the campaign for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, who are seriously starting to dream about a genuine title tilt.
With Jose Mourinho finally looking like he’s able to restore former glories to Old Trafford, their attacking forces look at their very best in years. Indeed, in the shape of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, there are some devastating front men.
So, imagine just how well reports from ESPN have gone down. They claim the club expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to sign a new deal at Old Trafford this week, as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The superstar Swede – who thrilled our resident Red Devils last season – is understood to have made a quicker recovery than expected from the ailment that curtailed his first season at the Theatre of Dreams back in April.
Mourinho is believed to have wanted to tie the 35-year-old down to a new deal all along and the former PSG skipper is said to have snubbed interest from LA Galaxy, as he wants to keep playing for United.
As you can imagine, our local United fans are dancing on the pool tables at this kind of news.
With Ibrahimovic acting as both cover and competition for Lukaku, United have perhaps the most clinical front line outside of Real Madrid/Barcelona. Though they may not be the most thrilling footballing team in the world, Mourinho’s side certainly have the firepower to win the Premier League title.
