Lukaku, who was also on target in the UEFA Super Cup loss to Real Madrid, was signed for £75 million from Everton this summer, having scored 25 times in 37 league outings for the Toffees past year. He was unbelievable for United last season, and is an out-and-out lethal goalscorer. Will United's offer change that outcome?
He was superb in scoring 28 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions.
Too many teams became hard to break down with defences tightly packed to guard the big number nine, who the play inevitably always went through.
ESPN's Andy Mitten confirmed on Sunday that a new contract with the 35-year-old, set to be sidelined through injury until January, could be tied by the end of this week. On some days, Ibrahimovic's style was effective and it proved particularly useful when United were chasing games.
USA and South Korea kick off annual military drills amid Pyongyang's threats
Moon said a "red line" would be Pyongyang "completing its ICBM and mounting it with a nuclear warhead and weapoinsing it". He says the drills are held regularly because of repeated provocations by North Korea.
Mourinho's men haven't struggled for goals so far this season but plenty of United fans would be absolutely delighted to see the Swede back in the red jersey. He has played his part in other attacks, full of direct running and more constructive teamwork on the pitch with his colleagues. "And this player, when he walks through the door, he demands respect and he'll get that from them there". Zlatan's addition upfront alongside Romelu Lukaku will be a lethal combination which can penetrate best of defence lines with relative ease.
While there may still remain unanswered questions circulating about Ibrahimovic's future, one thing is for certain: Zlatan will always be Zlatan.
Ibrahimovic can have a similar impact, but he must be willing to sacrifice himself if he wants to add a league title in a fifth different country to his collection.
As with his time at PSG, Ibrahimović has played a role in improving the mentality of the players surrounding him.
