Jose Mourinho says Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make Manchester United return next season

But according to Calciomercato, the 23-year-old forward wants to join Milan having been swayed by their ambitious project, with the club making eight new signings this summer.

The Rossoneri have already offered a player-plus-cash deal amounting to €40 million as well as Torino targets Gabriel Paletta and M'Baye Niang.

There have been conflicting reports over recent days as to the San Siro giants' chase of in-demand Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata, who has also been courted by the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea this summer.

MORATA'S NO - Milan have returned to being an attractive side for top players which wasn't the case since 2010 (when Ibrahimovic and Robinho joined the club).

Old Trafford, Carrington is open for him to recover and be one of us and, at the same time, let's make a decision that will make us all happy.

"There was a space of time for everybody to think, to feel, to decide and from his point of view he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level, didn't want to hide behind such an amazing injury". He was not happy with the way he finished the season, of course with his first European trophy, but not playing.

Paul Pogba has taken time out of his busy pre-season schedule to meet with the Beckham family during Manchester United's tour of the United States. Fassone did recently state that Milan would love to sign a top end striker as they have been following Belotti, Aubameyang and Morata.

"We are speaking, exchanging ideas, and again it is in the hands of Mr (Ed) Woodward and Zlatan's agent, but it's important the final decision is with the player".

"What I said today is what I say today".
