Manchester United news says that Mourinho is ready to put Ibrahimovic in behind Lukaku at the No 10 spot.

According to the special one, the veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready to start as a No 10 role for Manchester United.

In the recent past, the 36-year-old Swedish striker eased back into the team after a prolonged injury.

Today Manchester United will envisage Leicester City in their league match and Mourinho thinks this is the right time to put Ibrahimovic in the starting lineup at No 10 position.

Mourinho said: "He's an option,"

"He played one hour, a bit more [against Bristol City], it could be that he is ready to start the match, 90 minutes is probably too much, it depends on the match."

 

"I think he's ready to start."

Still, questions are there over how the special one will fit Ibrahimovic into the team after they made a signing of Luakau this season and who had 15 goals to his name this season for Manchester United in all competition.

But Mourinho thinks Ibrahimovic can easily fit himself to the No 10 position.

He added: "He played last match in that period in the second half where we replaced Lukaku for Daley Blind and Lukaku played number nine and Zlatan played 10,"

"I know it was in a period when his energy was going down but obviously there are spaces where a number 10 plays.

 

"And even when Ibra was as a clear number nine, the space is where he feels comfortable to play, so why not?"
