Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba arrived at Manchester United as two very high-profile signings during the summer. 

But while it is the former that got the season off to a bright start, it was the Frenchman who set records of a different kind - when he became the most expensive player in world football in August.

However, while their early-season form has differed somewhat, Red Devils left-back Luke Shaw has revealed both of United's new arrivals have had the same positive impact on the Manchester United dressing room.

While Ibrahimovic may cut a serious figure on the pitch, the 35-year-old is seemingly very different off it, according to Shaw. And Pogba isn't too different - keeping United's players entertained with his fancy footwork in the dressing room, rather in the middle of the field.

As per the Daily Mail, Shaw revealed: "Having someone like Ibra has helped the dressing room. He is a great person to be around, he tells so many jokes and it is good for morale. Now it is starting to show on the pitch that we are more together as a team."

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker made the perfect start to life as a United player, scoring four goals in his first three appearances - including the winner against Leicester City to lift the Community Shield at Wembley.

World class

However, the Swede's form has tailed off of late. Not that it will be of any concern to boss Jose Mourinho, who saw the world-class levels Ibrahimovic can reach, during their time together at Inter Milan.

But while Pogba may be having a testing time of late; failing to prove why the Red Devils spent a world-record £89 million on him in the summer, his confidence has evidently not dropped.

Revealing what the Frenchman brought to the dressing room, Shaw revealed: "A lot of dance moves in the changing room. He has brought a presence.

"He was named in the world XI for a reason and I believe he is one of the best in the world. I think he is still adapting and still doing good for the team.

Nice guy

"He is staying strong and believing in his ability. We can all see his ability in training. Game by game he is getting stronger. He is a very nice guy, in his terms he is a great leader as well."

While Ibrahimovic will be looking to re-find his shooting boots against Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday evening, Pogba will look to make a considerable impact on the Turkish opposition, in a bid to kickstart his career at Old Trafford.

United's ability to attract two of the world's top players to club this summer has proved the attraction to move Old Trafford hasn't waned since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.
