Ibrahimovic's return comes after Man U. signed striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton for an initial $99 million. The 24-year-old has scored seven times in his first 11 Premier League games.

Manager Jose Mourinho said that Ibrahimovic and Lukaku can play together.
"We can't expect him [Ibrahimovic] to play full 90 minutes or consecutive matches. He needs time to be back to his level – fitness and sharpness is everything, but, by the clinical point of view, it is fantastic to be ready," Mourinho was reported by ESPN as saying.
