Zlatan Ibrahimovic has rejoined Manchester United on a one-year contract after the Swedish star's spell with the Premier League side was curtailed by a serious knee injury last season.
Ibrahimovic missed the final weeks of United's campaign after suffering ligament damage in a Europa League clash against Anderlecht in April.
But United manager Jose Mourinho remained in contact with the 35-year-old while he underwent his rehabilitation and the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain forward has now agreed to return to Old Trafford.
"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.
Manchester United are currently top of the English Premier League table after two games.
It has been a bright start to the campaign for Mourinho's side, having won their first two games of the season. They beat West Ham United 4-0 in their opening match before reproducing the same result away to Swansea City last weekend.
