Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has named a 23-man squad for Saturday’s friendly against Galatasaray in Gothenburg, where Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make his unofficial debut.

The 34-year-old striker and Swedish icon, who retired from international football following his participation at Euro 2016 earlier this summer, looks set to register his first Reds appearance in his homeland after he was pictured training with his new team-mates on Thursday.

Ibrahimovic is joined in the squad by four other players who did not travel to China for the first leg of Tour 2016, presented by Aon – Matteo Darmian, Marouane Fellaini, Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial – following their participation in the latter stages of the European Championship in France.

New signings Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could make their third appearances for United since their own transfers to the club, while captain Wayne Rooney is presumably in line to feature for the first time under Mourinho after sitting out the match against Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai.

UNITED SQUAD FOR GALATASARAY FRIENDLY
De Gea, Johnstone, Romero, Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Rojo, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Herrera, Fellaini, Mkhitaryan, Young, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Memphis, Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Martial, Rashford.
