No matter what your opinion is of Manchester United or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the arrival of the Swedish international to the Premier League from Paris Saint-Germain this summer would have excited football fans around the country.

The self proclaimed 'God of Manchester' has already scored five goals for his new side and has taken to life across the channel quickly.

Despite not scoring in United's 4-1 victory over Leicester, he was integral in the build up to several goals and his presence was sure to have unnerved the centre back pairing of Wes Morgan and Robert Huth.

The striker has scored a whopping 306 league goals throughout his professional career, including 113 in just 122 games for PSG during his four-year spell.

However, his move to United is his first to the Premier League, having already represented some of Europe's biggest clubs, including: Barcelona, Juventus and both Milan clubs, to name a few.

And it seems that the United faithful have already taken to the eccentric striker quickly who has eased into the role as the Red Devils' number nine.

Zlatan's distinctive ponytail and moustache seems to have caught on to a number of his followers, and this was demonstrated during United's game with Leicester when an Ibrahimovic doppelganger took to the field and approached his idol.

The man didn't get too far, with security grabbing him from behind and pulling him off the field, but it didn't stop him from getting into close contact with the 34-year-old, who reacted brilliantly by palming his face away whilst laughing at his attempt to get close to him.

Seems like typical Ibra behaviour, who has never shied away from showing appreciation to his fans, regardless of the occasion.

Ibrahimovic has settled in nicely in Manchester and fans will be desperate for him to score more goals to propel them to Premier League glory for the first time since 2013.
