The prolific striker for Inter Milan Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to be available to face his former club Manchester United in the second leg of the last-16 Europa league match at San Siro. The striker has been nursing a muscle injury lately, but hope to return to the pitch on Thursday.
Ibrahimovic couldn't feature for his club against his former side in the first leg of the last-16 tie at Old Trafford due to thigh injury, but started training vigorously with the first team on Tuesday.
The striker suffered a thigh muscle tear, after featuring in Milan 2 - 1 win at Roma in serie A on February, 28.
Zlatan's history with United
Ibrahimovic joined Man United as a free agent from PSG between 2016 and 2018. Winning three trophies along the way, including the Europa League and Carabao Cup. The frontman scored 29 goals in 53 games for United in total, but eventually ended up leaving for a new adventure in MLS with the LA Galaxy.
Ibrahimovic returned to Milan for a second spell at the club in January 2020, and scored 11 goals in his first 20 domestic matches to earn a one-year contract extension.
The veteran striker has been even more prolific this season, netting 16 times through 21 appearances in all competitions, but has also missed 20 games due to a combination of injuries and a positive coronavirus test.
