When Zlatan Ibrahimovic speaks, he’s always got something interesting to say.
And so when the Manchester United striker decided to bring up Paul Pogba in his post-match interview, supporters’ ears perked up.
Ibrahimovic, who scored in his debut against Galatasaray, discussed United’s pursuit of the Juventus star and his comments have left many believing the deal is done.

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.
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.
