AC Milan receive Zlatan Ibrahimovic injury boost ahead of Manchester United clash

Reports in Italy are claiming that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be fit and available for selection for AC Milan against Manchester United on Thursday.

Man United will make a trip to Italy on Thursday night for their round of 16 return leg against Milan in the Europa League.

The Swedish forward missed the reverse fixture with a hamstring injury as his side were forced to fetch out a hard-earned 1-1 draw at Old Trafford without his services.

AC Milt need to stop Manchester United from scoring at San Siro on Thursday night in order to proceed to the Europa League quarter-final and their chances of doing so have been boosted by the return of the 39-year-old forward.

According to Sky Italia, Zlatan Ibrahimović will be fit and available selection for AC Milan against Man United on Thursday.

Manchester United will look to silence the football legend in Italy and Harry Maguire is no novice to Ibrahimovic.

Maguire came up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Premier League during his time at Hull City and Ibrahimovic’s time at Old Trafford.

Both players did not play as teammates and Maguire, who has been decent for the Red Devils this season, will gladly take up the challenge, alongside either Eric Bailly or Victor Lindelof.

Manchester United could have five players back from injury as well, including Paul Pogba, who has been out injured since suffering a thigh injury against Everton midway through February.

On Manchester United team news, Solskjaer told MUTV after the 1-0 win over West Ham United: Solskjær: “We hope five of them will be back [against AC Milan]. David [De Gea] hopefully, Donny [Van de Beek], Edinson [Cavani], Paul [Pogba] maybe and Anthony [Martial] hopefully – yeah, he’s very likely to be back. Stronger squad to travel to Italy with.”
