Manchester United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are delighted at the news that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has re-signed.
Jose Mourinho has enjoyed the perfect start to the new Premier League season with successive 4-0 victories against West Ham United and Swansea City respectively.
Now there’s even greater cause for excitement with the news that Zlatan has extended his career with the Red Devils.
The iconic Swedish striker scored a stunning tally of 28 goals in all competitions last season before he was sidelined with an injury.
His season reflects a continued period of personal success since turning 30.
The 35-year-old has scored an unbelievable total of 250 goals since turning 30, an indication that he’s still able to perform and excel at the highest level.
To have a player of his undeniable class and terrific experience will be of great benefit to the Red Devils this season, and he could prove to be a more than a capable mentor for fellow striker Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian forward has started the season in magnificent form, scoring four goals in three games in all competitions.
The possibility of the pair forming a partnership provides Mourinho’s attack with another dimension, and it could prove to be the most efficient and lethal striking partnership in the division
. Following the disappointment in the league last season, United supporters are itching for the chance to end their five-year wait for the league title.
This signing could help the club realise that ambition.
