"Do I think he will be back in 2017?"
Further, similar thoughts were shared by former United striker Andy Cole to MUTV where he said: "I had a chat with Zlatan when he was in the gym the other day. I think he will definitely bring something to the football team, as we already know", Cole commented. Last season he was fantastic - it would be nice to see him back when he's healed, "Cole added".

"We are silly if we don't know what is expecting for us, unless it's a new player in the Premier League which we have only Victor, apart from that everybody knows the Premier League and knows what it means to play against newly promoted teams, is nothing new.
