Omasi Talks recalls that Manchester United are closing in on a deal to sign Juventus striker, Mario Mandzukic in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are confident that a transfer fee of £9million will be accepted by the Serie A champions, who are desperate to sell the Croatian veteran.

Mandzukic is expected to sign an 18-month contract until the summer of 2021 and would earn a salary of £4.4m a year at Old Trafford but Ince believes the Red Devils would be better served re-signing Ibrahimovic.

Speaking ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, Ince told Paddy Power: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic seemed to tease going back to Spain, then he’s been linked with staying in the MLS, and even Perth Glory.

“But I think, if he wanted to, returning to Old Trafford would be the way to go. He’d be great at educating all of these young players that Ole is looking to bring through, an incredible off-pitch influence as well as on the field.

“They need someone who can control the changing room and be a true leader, and he fits that role. He can show the young players how it’s done. He would be the Godfather of United’s dressing room.

Ince added: “I can’t see Mario Mandzukic happening – so why not take Zlatan? You know that he isn’t going to play 90 minutes every game, but he’s a lethal goal scorer ultimately.

“It’d only be a short contract, and you know what he’s going to do and that’s score you goals. If you were to bring him on for 15 or 20 minutes he will find the net in that time. And we know that United have been struggling with creating chances and not scoring goals – he’s the perfect fit.”
