Europa League last-16 draw

Zlatan's Man Utd date

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been pivotal to AC Milan's title,Ibrahimovic's reunion with Manchester United makes

for a mouth-watering tie.

The 39-year-old striker established himself as a fan favourite during his short spell at Old Trafford, scoring in the Community Shield and EFL Cup triumphs in 2016/17.

Ibrahimovic played a key role in that season's

victorious Europa League run, but a serious knee injury in the quarter-final triumph against Anderlecht ruled him out of the remainder of the campaign.

The veteran only made seven more United appearances

after that and looked set to wind down his career when he moved to LA Galaxy in March 2018, but the striker has flourished since returning to Milan and passed a landmark 500 career club goals earlier in February.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's been impressed by Ibrahimovic this season and is looking forward to facing the veteran striker in the Europa League.

"It's a nice birthday gift, isn't it? To watch that draw,"Solskjaer told Manchester United's website .

"We do have the tradition of making it hard for

ourselves in draws. It's one of those draws again that you feel could be a Champions League game.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been impressed with Ibrahimovic this season

"It's good for us to have these games to look forward

to. This team needs challenges and we enjoy challenges

and we embrace them.

"The tradition and history of AC Milan, it's a great club

that we welcome and it's a great stadium that we go

to there, and we're looking forward to it.

"Zlatan, of course, I've been so impressed, I've got to

say, by how his career has gone.

"He had a career-threatening injury when he was here

but came back from that and went to [the] MLS, then

came back to Milan and has really lifted them. They're

on the up and have done really well this season."
