Manchester United missed the chance to pile the pressure on the Premier League’s top four after only managing a 1-1 draw at home to Everton on Tuesday night.
Jose Mourinho’s men fell behind to Phil Jagielka’s first half header, although Zlatan Ibrahimovic, returning from a three-match ban for elbowing Tyrone Mings, slotted home a penalty in the dying minutes to preserve United’s unbeaten league run.
The Red Devils are now unbeaten in their last 20 Premier League matches, dating back to their 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on October 23, but are still four points adrift of Manchester City in fourth after a 12th draw of the campaign.
And goal-scorer Ibrahimovic, who has now netted 27 times in all competitions this term, made it clear prior to yesterday’s clash that the club must match his ambitions for him to remain a United player next season.
He said (via The Telegraph): ‘A lot of things have to be settled.
‘Everything depends on what you want and what the club wants, what the vision of the club is because I said from day one I didn’t come here to waste time, I came here to win.
‘If you want to win bigger then you have to create bigger.’
With United linked with many high-profile players over the last few months or so, you sense that for the 35-year-old to remain at Old Trafford, Mourinho is going to have to land some of them in the summer.
Thus, here are THREE huge summer signings that could match Ibrahimovic’s ambitions, and thus keep the Swede at the club next term…
