Zlatan Ibrahimovic to sign new Man United contract this week

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could reportedly sign a new contract at Manchester United as early as this week due to his recovery from a knee injury going faster than expected.

His former United team-mate Eric Bailly then responded with his own video of him kicking Ibrahimovic before being chased out of the room, with the caption: "Hope you're nearly ready to return".

Free agent Ibrahimovic, 35, is recovering from a knee ligament injury sustained in a Europa League match against Anderlecht in April which was expected to keep him out until 2018.

ESPN is reporting that sources have todl them that the contract will be publily announced within the next five days.

Ibrahimović still has a lot left in the tank and he has already become an influential figure at Old Trafford in his lone season with the club.

'At all costs': South Korean leader vows to prevent war with North
Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the United States territory of Guam. The "red line" has been set down by South Korea and the US for North Korean provocations to trigger a military response.

The Sweden legend scored 17 Premier League goals last season - laughing in the face of doubters who asked if the division was too much for a player of his age to handle.

Earlier his month, Jose Mourinho confirmed: 'We are discussing the possibility of him [Ibrahimovic] to stay with us.

"I just think he was very clear showing what he did a year ago was not enough for him. He wants more at football's highest level, so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him staying with us for the second part of the season". However, Mourinho's men have certainly not been goal-shy in his absence, bouncing back from a disappointing Uefa Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid by opening the new Premier League campaign with successive 4-0 demolitions of West Ham United and Swansea City respectively.

Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his interest in re-signing Ibrahimovic and reports suggest the veteran forward will join up with his former team-mates once again before the summer transfer window slams shut.
