Following a season where he scored a remarkable 38 goals in Ligue 1, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been widely tipped to take the Premier League by storm at Manchester United.
The 34-year-old arrived earlier this summer on a free transfer to much fanfare, with the general consensus being that United's striker crisis had finally been solved.
And that could well prove to be the case, but for club legend Paul Scholes, Ibrahimovic faces a problem at Old Trafford.

According to the former midfielder, the gulf in class between United and Paris Saint-Germain could work against the enigmatic striker where goals are concerned.
In an interview with Sports Witness, he said: "We don’t know about Zlatan. He is 34 and probably going to play only for a year. Okay, he is a fit lad.
"I think with Ibrahimovic it is, he was playing in a team of PSG and they created a lot of chances. It was easy for him to score goals in that league.
"This Manchester United team isn’t as good as the PSG team. It might be in time to come. He is going to have to do more for himself in the Manchester United team. More than he did at PSG."
At the Parc des Princes, Ibrahimovic had the world-class likes of Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani assisting him; in Manchester, the Sweden international will rely on Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to supply his goals.
Now, on first inspection there doesn't seem to be great difference between his former and current teammates, but the Premier League is a whole new ball game compared to Ligue 1; goalscoring opportunities will be harder to come by.
It's also important to note that throughout his career, Ibrahimovic has played for dominant teams i.e. Barcelona in La Liga and Inter Milan in Serie A.
So perhaps Scholes' fears are justified, but if anyone can prove his doubters wrong - like he has done so many times before - it's Ibrahimovic.
