With Champions League football back at Old Trafford this season it appears that Mourinho is determined to use any possible artillery to achieve his and the club's goals. Even though he is 35 years old and coming off a serious injury, no one can deny his talent.

We also got a central midfielder and a striker. And if we have learned something about Ibrahimovic over the years, is that he doesn't give up until he gets what he wants.
