It didn’t take long for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to start smashing records at Manchester United. Just a matter of hours, in fact.
That’s because the Swedish striker, who completed his move to Old Trafford on Friday, has broken the club’s power records during his medical at the club’s Aon Training Complex.
That was confirmed by the club’s official Twitter account who said: “Making history already. We can confirm Zlatan broke #mufc power records in tests during his medical. #ZlatanTime” accompanied with a picture of Zlatan looking very pleased with himself - and rightly so.
The 34-year-old has arrived at the Theatre of Dreams, signing a one-year contract after his deal with Paris Saint-Germain expired.
He may be reaching the end of his career, but Ibrahimovic is still regarded as one of the best striker’s in world football. His 52 goals in all competitions last campaign helped his side win three trophies and United fans will be hoping he can emulate that in Manchester in the next 12 months.
And the enigmatic forward is certainly no stranger to silverware. He has won 13 titles in four different countries but faces his toughest challenge to turn Red Devils into title winners once again.
He’s certainly made an impressive start to his United career though, without even kicking a ball.
After completing the deal, a very happy Ibrahimovic said: 'I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again.
'He is a fantastic manager and I am ready for this new and exciting challenge. The only regret I had with Jose was that I had a short time with him. I had one season (at Inter Milan). We won together, we enjoyed it together and had a great time together.
