Ibrahimovic, 35, signed a one-year deal at Manchester United after arriving on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
Lukaku scored 25 times in 36 games in the Premier League last season to finish as the division’s second-highest goal-socrer behind Harry Kane, leaving Everton have netted 53 goals in 110 top-flight appearances.
However, ex-Chelsea manager has since been impressed by the player’s determination and attitude towards accepting his on-pitch demands. Ibrahimovic, who turns 36 in October, was United’s top scorer last season with 28 goals.
“I’ve got to focus on a club perspective first and help the team win as many trophies as possible”, said Lingard.
“There was a space and time for everyone to think, to feel, to decide and, from his point of view, he made the decision to still want to play football at the highest level”.
“He didn’t want to hide behind an unbelievable injury”.
Football fans are relatively easy to please. He was not happy in the way he finished the season.
“But it’s Real Madrid’s right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want”.
Mourinho indicated a decision on a new contract for Ibrahimovic would likely be taken closer to him regaining full fitness.
Shaw made his return to training weeks earlier than required in early June as he aimed to step up his recovery from an ankle ligament injury he suffered in April.
“I think Gary Neville said he’s the best forward he’s played with and that’s some compliment because he’s played with plenty”. The former Everton man had looked set for a move to Stamford Bridge, but following The Blues’ indecisive action he opted to switch to The Theatre of Dreams much to the chagrin of Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte.
The 54-year-old was reluctant to put that kind of pressure on his new signing, and simply said he expects plenty of goals from him next season.
Everton – who have spent freely in the close season – are believed to have hoped to sell Lukaku for closer to 100m which would have made him the world’s most expensive player bettering the Pound 89m that United spent on Pogba a year ago.
