With the transfer of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United becoming more and more likely to be completed before Euro 2016, according to Sky Sports News, we take a look at what exactly the big Swedish striker will bring to the Red Devils.
Ibrahimovic's scoring record is indisputable and phenomenal, having scored across five different leagues including Serie A, La Liga, Eredivisie, Allsvenskan and most recently Ligue 1. Medals and goals have summed up a glittering career for the often controversial striker.
Ibrahimovic could head to United on the back of scoring 113 goals in 117 starts for Paris Saint-Germain. The stats are unbelievable in comparison to other strikers across the rest of Europe, with only Luis Suarez (40) and Cristiano Ronaldo (35) scoring near the haul of 38 that Ibrahimovic netted this term.

Manchester United currently boast some of the most highly-rated young players in Europe, including Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Memphis Depay.

You can only imagine these young energetic prospects learning plenty from Ibrahimovic during the course of a Premier League season.
Doubts have been drawn on the potential effectiveness of Ibrahimovic in a more physical league such as the Premier League, however, there is no doubt that playing alongside Ibrahimovic could provide the young players with some experience, especially Martial and Rashford, who could benefit from any coaching that the much more experienced striker could bring to the fold.
So, not only will Ibrahimovic bring the goods on the pitch in terms of goals and a winner's mentality, he will also bring a wealth of experience which he can pass on to the United youngsters.
