Manchester United are in discussions to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the second half of the season when he recovers from a serious knee injury, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed on Friday.

Mourinho won the title in his second season in both spells at Chelsea, as well as during his time at Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

One of the the Portuguese manager's objectives is to win the Premier League, having stumbled home sixth in a campaign that brought Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield glory.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation".

The eight-year-old's favourite United players are Ander Herrera, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, and he is a promising footballer himself and even has a trial at Southampton next week.

Despite Romelu Lukaku's arrival, Mourinho knows the Belgian can not be relied upon exclusively, and requires more from the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford.

"But when I asked him about what getting the medal means, he was excited but said "I just want to win my first Ballon d'Or before I turn 20"," Ibrahim said.

"In my initial analysis from January and through the months I was thinking of four players but I'm not a hard person to work with in spite of if you make it look different", said Mourinho, ahead of United's Premier League opener against West Ham tomorrow.

Defeat by Real Madrid in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup match in Skopje was a setback, but Mourinho says his team are ready for the new season.

Summer signing Victor Lindelof is in line to make his Premier League debut and he could be partnered by Eric Bailly with Chris Smalling dropping to the bench.

"I have conditions to deliver a better team than I did in the first season".

'And for me the medal will go to some place in my house and for that kid it's for sure something to keep and remember.

"All the top seven are in Europe - last season three were not - so we are all in the same basket". It is going to be the same for everybody.

"But we are involved in four competitions and step by step, match after match we are going to fight".
