STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told former Red Devils striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic that "he knows my number" if the Swede is serious about a return to Old Trafford.

Earlier in the week, Zlatan, now plying his trade with LA Galaxy in the MLS, taunted a return to Manchester, saying "I could play easy in the Premier League, so if United need me, I'm here," before adding "but Galaxy has me, so I'm sorry," while grinning.

When pushed if Solskjaer was seriously considering a return, the Norwegian confirmed he believed that Zlatan's "had his time at the club." Ibrahimovic spent an injury-laden two seasons at Manchester United, scoring 29 goals in 53 appearances.

United face a trip to Southampton on Saturday (August 31) and were on Friday (August 30) drawn in Group L in the UEFA Europa League alongside Astana, Partizan and AZ Alkmaar.

Mourinho: Kane's record speaks for itself

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho went on the attack in his defence of comments made about Harry Kane by Paul Merson. The Sky Sports pundit suggested Kane would want to leave Spurs because of Mourinho’s pragmatic style of play and picked apart the England captain’s performance in Friday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United. But Mourinho, reading from a piece of paper in a clearly planned response, listed the scoring stats of former strikers Didier Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Diego Milito and Zlatan Ibrahimovic and said Kane would have no issues scoring goals. “I feel a bit strange at some analysis and some comments, especially as it looks for me at the beginning of some comments and analysis have started from Paul (Merson),” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference previewing Tuesday’s visit of West Ham.
