Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reportedly link up with his teammates for full training at Carrington – starting from the month of November. The Swede has occasionally used the club’s training facilities since undergoing a knee operation in the Unites States in the tailend of last season.
Ibrahimovic, now 36, excelled during his first season at Old Trafford with 28 goals in 46 outings, but his campaign was cut short by a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in April. The Swede was initially released from his contract in the off-season, but signed a year’s extension in August after making good progress following his injury.
According to ESPN, the 36-year-old is expect to train on a regular basis by the end of October as he looks to make a full recovery under the guidance of United’s medical team. Despite the long-term absence, the Red Devils have Ibrahimovic in the squad for the Champions League group stage, although he is unlikely to participate.
Fellow teammate Marcos Rojo also sustained a cruciate ligament injury in the Anderlecht game, but the Argentine has since participated in an individual training regime. Both players are unlikely to return to first-team action until the turn of the year.
