The former Sweden international is eyeing up a return to action in time for his side’s December 2 clash against Arsenal in the Premier League.

The 36-year-old has been on the sidelines since April with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which it was initially feared would keep him out for the best part of a year.

Ibrahimovic has made a remarkable recovery in recent months, however, leading to Man United handing him a new contract to take him through until next summer.

According to The Mirror, Ibrahimovic now has a comeback in his sights as he is due back in daily training next month.

The report suggests that boss Jose Mourinho is keen to get the superstar striker back up and running, with a gruelling run of fixtures to come at home and in Europe.
