  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic transfer: LA Galaxy closing in on Manchester United star

Ibrahimovic played under the Spaniard at Barcelona for only one season in 2009/2010, but their relationship soured and the striker had to leave for AC Milan.

The former Sweden worldwide has been in superb form since moving to Old Trafford on a free transfer in the summer, finally proving after many years that he can cut it in the Premier League.

Gary Neville has urged Manchester United to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a two-year contract in reward for the Swede's formidable form at Old Trafford so far this season.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Mourinho said: "Zlatan is not a surprise for me".

"Plus I already knew Mourinho and what he wants".

"Because of the professionalism, the training and his commitment to the club".

'I think United needed personalities and characters after what happened in the previous few seasons.

Despite wanting the forward to stay, United are preparing for life without him.

Trump's may not have been amused, some experts said the tweet could actually help boost McDonald's standing. Update: McDonald's corporate Twitter account just posted some clarification of what happened.

"First he called me every day to have me and from one day to the next I didn't play anymore", he said.

'There has to be a dip at some point.

'The reality is, I'm not quite sure that will be able to happen as he continues to get a little bit older'.

Indeed, Ibrahimovic has led the line with authority for the Red Devils, using his ability to mesh physicality and poise to dominate Premier League defences.

The former Paris Saint-Germain forward is now serving a three-match Premier League suspension and will miss United's Sunday lunchtime game at struggling Middlesbrough.

"My family was very happy in Milan", he said. Maybe now, he has a chance to show what he is.

"It's good that they're not relying upon him in every single game, but in some ways he needs to stand up and take the opportunity".
