Paper Round's view: Ibrahimovic does have a point in stating United will struggle to create a new identity if they keep looking to the past, but it is now serving them well under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is channelling, and even using, Ferguson as a source of inspiration as the club looks to put Jose Mourinho's mini-era behind them.
Where will Mourinho be next season?
United won the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup that year but City remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple. "I want to return this summer, starting from June, for the beginning of the season".
He continued: 'I know exactly what I don't want, which is why I have already turned down three or four offers.
"It's not like I am on holiday, it's not like I am bored - I am preparing myself for the next one".
"It doesn't matter where I go, I want to go to a place where I can still win", he said.
Mourinho went on to speak about the specifics of the jobs he is searching for, giving a small insight into just why he has already rejected a handful of offers. "Yeah, ok, you've had your time, we know it".
"And now I have having this month where I think I'm going to be back even better prepared".
"A national team job is a very specific job - I like daily football, daily work, I like many competitons, I like many matches and I want to stay at football club level", he added. I don't mean the name of the club, but the type of work, the style of club.
However, the faltering "Los Blancos" opted for Zinedine Zidane, who returned to the club after leaving in the summer, meaning Mourinho is now in the wilderness. "So, now if they're talking, I don't know whether Ferguson gave them permission or not".
But the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter and Porto boss is preparing himself for a new challenge. Some parts of the Blues' support seem to have had enough of Maurizio Sarri after yet another defeat against Everton, with Sarrismo still some way off.
