Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has rejoined English Premier League club Manchester United on a one-year contract.

Ibrahimovic missed the final weeks of United's campaign after suffering ligament damage in a Europa League clash against Anderlecht in April.

The former Barcelona forward said he cannot wait to get back on the pitch in United’s colours to do what he knows best.

"I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club's intention for me to stay," Ibrahimovic told United's website.

"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."

Zlatan scored 28 times in 46 appearances in his first season with United.
