Confirmed: Global Superstar Is Closer To Manchester United Move

Mourinho wants Ivan Perisic to become his fourth summer signing but Inter are holding firm

Mourinho wants Ivan Perisic to become his fourth summer signing but Inter are holding firm

What do they have in common?

Ibrahimovic is now without a club after his contract expired with Manchester United.

His rehabilitation has continued at the club's Carrington training complex, with Jose Mourinho saying in July that he could resume at United despite Romelu Lukaku's arrival.

Mourinho hinted on the eve of the European Super Cup against Real Madrid in Skopje, which United lost 2-1, that the former Juventus, Milan and Paris Saint-Germain striker could rejoin the club this season. A new short-term contract would also have to be agreed but it is understood both parties are keen to compromise in order to conclude a deal to prolong Ibrahimovic's Old Trafford career.

United are straight back in competitive action this weekend as they begin their Premier League season against West Ham. The club has been active during the transfer window and have brought in some quality players to increase their chances.

Since then, United have splurged in the transfer market, spending almost £150m ($194.8m) on the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof as they look to improve on their league table finish last season.

The experienced forward, who scored 17 Premier League goals for United last season, helped his side to victories in the Community Shield and League Cup final by scoring in both Wembley encounters. Which players they will add between now and the end of the month could play a big role in their season.

It was a classy moment for the Red Devils boss who will be disappointed to start the new campaign with a loss.
