Jose Mourinho confirms talks over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Man United return

  • United in talks with Ibrahimovic about striker staying

The former Sweden striker was United's top scorer last season, hitting 28 goals as they won the Europa League, the League Cup and the Community Shield.

The Red Devils often struggled to find a way past teams last term, when Zlatan Ibrahimovic provided the key impetus with 17 Premier League goals, although no other player was able to reach double figures.

"We always had more goals with wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals, and last season that didn't happen much".

"I think in the moments where they were moving more the ball, of course it was hard for us in the midfield".

"We have a central midfielder and a striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides, but we have players and if we can not strengthen then we have people we trust". "I'm really happy to start the Premier League this weekend because our pre-season was very complete and was a pre-season organised in a way where we start playing MLS teams and ended playing against the best teams in Europe".

"We'll win the league this year", Manchester United legend Paddy Crerand opined an hour after seeing the Europa League winners outclassed by Real Madrid in Tuesday's Super Cup in Skopje.

He has made some important investments over the summer, signing Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, whilst noting that he still wants to bring in a winger before the window shuts.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation". After a first season of transition, Mourinho must stamp his authority on this team and is under a lot of pressure to deliver the coveted Premier League title.

Mourinho has been boosted by David de Gea staying and feels United's rivals will be more tied up with European commitments this season. "They have to play on the Thursdays, but the top seven are going to be in the four competitions, so no advantage for any one of us".

As far as Mourinho's team news is concerned, the likes of Rojo, Young, Shaw and Wilson are out injured (PhysioRoom).

Asked if full-back was an area he was happy with or looking to strengthen, Mourinho said: "You know 25 per cent means one of four".

"I don't say I know the league better because I have been in this league for a long time".

"They have improved the squad with quality and big transfers, so we will have to be on top of our game".
