In the news, Manchester United has reportedly completed the signing of former PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic joined the Reds on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain back in July 2016, and his currently regaining his fitness at the Red Devils training ground.

The 35-year-old told reporters on Friday: “It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.”

He added: “I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready.

“I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.”

Manchester United will be facing Leicester on Saturday, as Mourinho will be looking to continue their winning streak this season.
