The experienced frontman is back in the Red Devils fold and ready to help Jose Mourinho's men chase down Premier League and Champions League crowns

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is targeting more trophies at Manchester United, with it his opinion that the club can challenge “for everything”.

The enigmatic Swedish striker played a leading role for the Red Devils in 2016-17 as Jose Mourinho’s first season at the helm delivered three pieces of silverware.

He netted winning goals in Community Shield and EFL Cup triumphs, while also helping United on their way to Europa League success.

Ibrahimovic is now back for more, having recovered from a serious knee injury to return to the fold against Newcastle, and the 36-year-old is aiming high in the Premier League and Champions League.

He told reporters after stepping off the bench in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle: “I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?

“We are all here because we want to win and we need to because they are first.

“Jose Mourinho knows what he is doing even when the number of players are limited because he’s a winner and has been winning every season.

“I think there is a possibility for everything. We were early into it last year and won two trophies and we are stronger this season.

“We believe we can do it – that’s the aim. To win and get the trophies.”

Ibrahimovic’s outing against Newcastle was his first since April 20.

An untimely injury picked up in a Europa League clash with Anderlecht saw him forced under the knife and onto a long road to recovery.

He is now back to full fitness and set to offer Mourinho a useful alternative, or possible partner to £75 million man Romelu Lukaku as United piece together another tilt at multiple honours in 2017-18.
