Zlatan Ibrahimovic hopes Paul Pogba completes his much discussed move to Manchester United, stating the midfielder’s arrival will make the club “even more interesting”.
Manchester United reportedly are set to seal a €110 million deal for the midfielder, with the ongoing transfer saga expected to come to an end in the near future.
Despite the lack of Champions League football awaiting Jose Mourinho’s men in 2016-17, Ibrahimovic is impressed with the work the club is making and believes Pogba’s signing would boost the team.
“We have something big going on,” Ibrahimovic told Swedish television station Kanal 5 .
“It looks very interesting.
“Let’s see if Pogba will also [come], then it will be even more interesting.”
Ibrahimovic scored his first United goal just four minutes into his debut in Saturday’s 5-2 friendly win over Galatasaray in Gothenburg.
The Swede netted an acrobatic effort and said he was delighted to get his first goal on home soil.
“It felt good. Very good. The first half was so-so but the second was good,” the 34-year-old said.
“It was my first game and right now it’s important to build up my physique and stamina.
“[Scoring on Swedish soil] felt even better. It was fantastic. We had great support and this is my country. I can’t fail in my country.”
