Veteran striker Ibrahimovic has been out of action since sustaining a serious knee ligament injury in the Europa League quarter-final clash against Anderlecht at Old Trafford last April.
Having initially been released by the club in June, he recently re-signed with United and took over Wayne Rooney's former number 10 shirt for the new season.

"The way we try to do it is to speak about opportunities for others".
