Zlatan Ibrahimovic has “no time to rest” as he works his way back to fitness amid reports that a return to Manchester United could be on the cards.

The enigmatic striker was among those released by the Red Devils at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, having reached the end of a 12-month contract.

He saw his season cut short by a cruciate knee ligament injury but still managed 28 goals across all competitions.

Ibrahimovic is now a free agent, and being linked with the likes of AC Milan and MLS side the LA Galaxy, but he could be re-signed by Jose Mourinho if his rehabilitation continues to go to plan.

Ibrahimovic picked up an untimely injury during a Europa League clash with Anderlecht in April.

That knock ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign, as United swept to continental glory — securing them a third trophy of the season.

The 35-year-old was not offered fresh terms after undergoing surgery, but Mourinho has hinted that an agreement could be reached in the coming weeks.

He said of Ibrahimovic ahead of United’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid: “Maybe he'll stay with us.

“He's not got a contract, but he's still close to Manchester, and the fact we are involved in the Super Cup now is also his merit.”

Ibrahimovic was granted permission to use United’s training facilities at Carrington as he started out on the road to recovery, allowing him to remain in close contact with the club.
