Manchester United manager Solskjaer publicly lamented his side’s lack of quality and experience in his attacking department after their shocking 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Norwegian manager isn’t folding his arms to watch the unwanted situation, he is reportedly doing everything possible to see that situation improve in the second period of the season.

As part of his mission to put things right at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has reportedly discussed with former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich over the possibility of bringing him back to the Theatre of Dreams in the winter.

Ibrahimovich, 38, will become a free agent during the January transfer window and Solskjaer is looking at the prospect of luring him back to Old Trafford as a short-term solution to the goalscoring problem facing his team.

The former Barcelona striker is known for his attacking flare and prowess, and it is believed that his presence will boost the morale of the vastly young strikers who desperately need an experienced player to learn from.

Should the Red Devils eventually lure the Swedish international to Old Trafford in January, the proposed move for Mario Mandzukic could be postponed to the next summer window if the Croatian doesn’t sign for another club.
