Romelu Lukaku has revealed his delight at seeing Zlatan Ibrahimovic re-sign for Manchester United this summer.

The veteran striker has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract with the Red Devils after initially being released by the club at the start of the summer.

Ibrahimovic suffered a serious knee injury back in April and required surgery to correct the problem and it was unclear whether he would be returning to Manchester United this season.

However, the 35-year-old has now committed his future to Jose Mourinho’s men as he looks to try and help them win the Premier League title this season.

And Lukaku has admitted his delight at seeing the 35-year-old forward commit his future to the Old Trafford outfit.

Lukaku is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “I already knew for a while that Zlatan would sign but I didn’t tell anyone. I’m happy. We need his personality.

“I think Zlatan will bring us a lot. I think he has one mission, and that is to win the Premier League, and we’re going to help him reach his goal.”

Manchester United are flying high at the top of the Premier League table after a strong start to the new season.

The Red Devils have won all three of their games against West Ham, Swansea and Leicester, scoring 10 goals with no reply.

Mourinho’s side return to action after the international break when they take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday evening as they look to maintain their 100 per cent record.
