Out of contract Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be given the chance to resurrect his Manchester United career as he battles back from a serious knee injury, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed on Friday.

Swedish star Ibrahimovic was United's top-scorer last season, bagging 28 goals in all competitions.

However, the 35-year-old's future was cast into doubt after he suffered a double cruciate ligament injury in April, cutting short a successful first season.

The injury prompted United to shelve plans to exercise an option to give Zlatan a second season with the club, with the player officially released last month.

However, the Swede has impressed United with the pace of his recovery and the striker has been allowed to use the club's facilities to help his rehabilitation.

Mourinho, speaking ahead of United's opening US tour game against Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday, said Ibrahimovic could yet return to the club next season.

"It's possible, it's open," Mourinho said.Although Ibrahimovic had been linked to a move to Major League Soccer, Mourinho said the forward had indicated he wanted to continue to play at "the highest level."

"From his point of view, he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level," Mourinho said.

"So we open our door for him to recover with us, at Old Trafford, at Carrington."

"Let's make a decision that makes us all happy and if that is for him to stay, and for us to wait, let's say in December -- because I don't think before December he can get back to competitive football -- but why not wait for a player who gave us so much?" Mourinho said. © AFP
