Zlatan Ibrahimovic has welcomed the idea of Paul Pogba joining him at Manchester United, in quotes published by the Guardian.

The 34-year old was speaking to the press after making his debut in the Red Devils’ 5-2 win over Galatasaray yesterday.

“We have something big going on,” said Ibrahimovic. “It looks very interesting. Let’s see if Pogba will also [come], then it will be even more interesting.”

The former Paris Saint German and Inter Milan star began his United career in characteristic fashion; scoring with an overhead kick three minutes into his debut.

Antonio Valencia burst down the right flank and floated in a cross where a waiting Ibrahimovic held off the defender at his back, met the ball in mid-air and watched it bounce off the turf before nestling in the back of the net.
