Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to step up his recovery at Manchester United by returning to Carrington on a full-time basis this month, according to reports in the British media.

ESPN is reporting that the Swedish striker is to return to Manchester United’s Carrington training base “full time” as he continues on his road to recovery from a serious knee injury.

Ibrahimovic has been making regular visits to Carrington in recent weeks as he bids to get himself back fit as quickly as possible.

However, the same report now claims that Ibrahimovic is expected to be based at Carrington on a daily basis in the coming weeks as he approached the end of his rehabilitation.

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see Ibrahimovic back in action for the Red Devils as quickly as possible as the veteran striker bids to earn a place back in the first team at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been coping pretty well with his absence, however, with summer signing Romelu Lukaku having been in fine form.

The Belgian striker, who signed from Everton in the summer transfer window, has scored seven goals and made on assist in seven Premier League games so far this season to help Manchester United up to second place in the table.

Manchester United take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.
