MANCHESTER ENGLAND – MARCH 11

Ibrahimovic re-signed for Jose Mourinho's United side after recovering well from a knee injury that ended his season at Old Trafford.

Asked if Lukaku would win the golden boot this season, Saha - a victor of two Premier Leagues and the Champions League with United - said: "I think so, he looks like he has got all the players around him to fit him".

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals across all competitions for the 20-time English champions last season to help them to three trophies - the Community Shield, the EFL Cup and the Europa League. We need his personality, Lukaku told reporters while on worldwide duty with Belgium.

The 24-year-old told reporters while on global duty: "I said to Zlatan I hoped he would be back". In only Zlatan style, he has looked on track and was re-signed by the club last week on a £125k a week deal, to offer competition and mentorship to the club's new headline act, Romelu Lukaku.

"Manchester City started as favourites and I don't think people were really talking about Manchester United, but after the start people are saying [maybe], but it is a long, long way to go".


"The manager has helped me a lot to settle quickly, so it has all been very positive". And with him we are looking to do something special.

Concerns have been raised over the seriousness of Nathaniel Clyne's back injury after the defender was left out of Liverpool's Champions League squad.

"I can not wait for him to resume playing again at Old Trafford".

Legendary Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson holds the all-time record with 194 games, while Mourinho - who has won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010 - has managed 133 matches in Europe's elite tournament to date.
