Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he was open to re-signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
And the Swedish star is determined to repay the faith, sending a message to the United boss as he steps up his recovery from a serious knee injury.
Despite scoring 28 goals in all competitions, Ibrahimovic's contract was not renewed by United after his injury in April.
But the 35-year-old striker is looking strong after posting a video lifting weights on Instagram.
Former Paris Saint-Germain frontman Ibrahimovic has also been linked with MLS side LA Galaxy as well as AC Milan and others in Europe.
