The 34-year-old didn’t exactly confirm the move. He didn’t say: “Yes, Pogba is a United player.”

But many United supporters, eagerly anticipating confirmation that the £100 million deal is complete, reckon Ibrahimovic accidentally announced the end of the long-running transfer saga.

Speaking to Swedish TV after United’s 5-2 win, Ibrahimovic said: “If Pogba comes as well it’ll be more interesting, we’ll see. There’s something great being built here.”

Check out the reaction from fans.

One United fan, however, isn't jumping the gun.

Something great 

Ibrahimovic might be right when he says Jose Mourinho is building “something great”. The 34-year-old scored on his debut, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini both found the net and Antonio Valencia had three assists.

If Mourinho can boost the performances of Fellaini and Valencia, just think of how good he can make Pogba.
