ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC is expected to finally return to full training next week.
Manchester United’s cult hero has not played since picking up a knock to his knee against Burnley on Boxing Day.
But he was out running with the physio Friday afternoon, after spending the previous few weeks working on his core fitness at Carrington.
The Swedish forward posted a video to his Instagram story on Saturday training on a bike.
Ibra was also in a tent as he continued his rigorous recovery programme.
Ibrahimovic has been allowed to manage the pace of his own comeback, and the signing of Alexis Sanchez has also eased the pressure on the 36-year-old not to rush back too soon.
Yet that hasn’t dimmed his determination to get back to action as quickly as possible.
And now he has insisted to conditioning staff that he is getting close, with United preparing to ease him back into their team sessions over the next few days.
Manchester United eased past Yeovil on Friday night to book their spot in the FA Cup fifth round.
