United, by contrast, will be desperate to land a first Premier League title since 2013, with manager Jose Mourinho not holding back in the transfer market as he seeks to mould his expensively assembled squad into title winners.

The former Sweden worldwide scored 28 goals for the Red Devils last season before suffering a knee injury against Anderlecht in April.

However, the Portuguese insists there is no urgency about the situation as Ibrahimovic still has much recovery work ahead of him. It's hard to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world.

On the prospect of re-signing Ibrahimovic once the 35-year-old striker has recovered, Mourinho said: "We are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season".

Despite Mourinho making a key decision to help Ramos switch from right-back to central defence, Ramos feels the former Real manager did not change his life in football.

The 20-time English champions have signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic this summer.

But it is widely expected that United fans could have a chance to see him in a red shirt again. "I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said. I'm not in a position of crying, of moaning, protesting.

He continued: 'I'm happy with the effort the club did, I'm happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts.

He added: "If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive by August 31, I will not moan. But the top seven, we are going to be in the four competitions and so there is no advantage for any one of us".

"We always had more goals with wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that did not happen much".

After his side went up to collect their runners up medals, the United boss handed his to a Nigerian kid, Deji in the stands in Macedonia, a kind gesture he has made a habit of in recent years. "But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust".
