Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic appear to have already formed a brilliant relationship off the pitch at Manchester United.

The pair have taken to social media this week to upload numerous videos and images attempting to tease each other for one reason or another.

And Pogba, who is set to make his United debut on Friday night against Southampton, has hilariously trolled Ibrahimovic by attempting an impression of the legendary Swede.

In an interview with Thierry Henry, the world’s most expensive footballer was speaking about his relationship with his new teammate.

Zlatan is becoming just as renowned for his entertainment off the pitch, than for his world-class ability on it. And Pogba has revealed exactly what he’s like, including a brilliant impression.

“He loves to joke, everytime I see him,” he told Henry.

“He has to say something about my shoes, about my hair.

“And the way he talks to you ‘Zlatan Ibrahimovic, I am Zlatan’ - I hope when he sees this, he’s going to think about me.”

Pogba's Zlatan impression

Check out the brilliant impersonation below:


But this bit of banter is far from the first piece of bromance we’ve seen between the pair.

Pogba has revealed how the former Paris Saint-Germain striker has teased him about the boxing training he uploaded on Instagram during his summer break.

“Zlatan made fun of my training when I was on holiday. The boxing training. That was funny. He said, ‘you don’t need all this to beat someone, you just need one punch”, Pogba said.

In case you haven’t seen it, here is the training video Zlatan has mocked mercilessly:

To be fair, Ibrahimovic is probably the best man to comment on Pogba’s training routine. The enigmatic forward is, himself, a keen martial arts fan and, when he’s not on the pitch, is busy practising his moves.

After Pogba signed for the club, Ibrahimovic tweeted a picture of the pair of them with the caption: "Finally my shirt brought him back. @paulpogba,” claiming that it was him that made Pogba return to the Theatre of Dreams.

Pogba then tried to get his say in an Instagram video.

In the post, Pogba tries to mock the new Man United No. 9 by joking that Zlatan wanted a picture with him to improve his public profile and 'get famous'.

Not prepared to be outdone by his new teammate, Ibrahimovic replies in typical Ibrahimovic fashion with a cheeky remark: "Come on, I make you famous now."

Pogba then posted a tweet seemingly calling Ibrahimovic ’Thor.’

While we’re not too sure on the connection between Zlatan and the American superhero, it just adds to the bromance the pair seemingly have.

It’s clear they’re on the same wavelength off the pitch, but can the pair help United succeed on the pitch?

We’ll get an idea on Friday evening as Pogba is set to make his second debut during their home clash against Southampton.
