He said: "Zlatan is here, under our control, working as I would expect, so, so hard, but he's not back in a week or a couple of weeks".

"He needs to take his time and come back in the right moment". "I think he is looking forward to coming back, most probably in December or January time".

However, the Portuguese is hoping Ibrahimovic, who scored 28 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions for United last season, could be back sooner.

As it is known, Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up a knee injury while playing for Manchester United in the Europa League last April.

The Swede has been recovering from the knee surgery and the club have been happy with his progress in recent months as he undergoes a lengthy rehabilitation process.

SunSport told you he is back in training with the first team.

Mourinho also confirmed that defender Luke Shaw was fit, but was "still working" to get back into his first team plans.

Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick all remain sidelined, while Mourinho appears no closer to discovering when Paul Pogba is likely to recover from a long-term hamstring issue.

"For some it's better to remember the team is not in its full strength, it's better to remember "play A or B" and "C or D is still important for the team".

"I don't want to speak about signings yet, or market or January, we are in October, we have November, December and half of October to play, so why should I speak about the market".

Mourinho said in a press conference: "Paul is not here, I don't know when he comes back, when he's available, I've no idea". "Doesn't mean I don't miss the players".

"Nobody is back from injury but what we have is good".

"Yes, is true I wanted four players in the summer and I think clearly everybody knows the position, maybe you know the player, didn't happen but we adapt to it and try the best we can", he said.
