With the debut of Paul Pogba, at his second coming, delayed to suspension, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be the centre of attention as Manchester United get their season started against Bournemouth on Sunday.

The capture of the thirty-four year-old Swede could be a key factor in the outcome of the 2016 / 2017 Premier League title.

However, it remains to be seen whether Zlatan can be as much of an influence in the Premier League as he has been in the other European Leagues.

In an almost theatrical fashion Ibrahimovic didn`t declare where he was going until the last moment, but when pressed on Sky Sports, Click Here, as to why he joined Manchester United his response says it all,

“It was the moment to come to England, and who would not come to Manchester United? I don’t believe there is anybody who could say no to a club like Manchester United.

Probably the players that play for other clubs in England would like to come here, 100 per cent. I am very happy I am here and representing Manchester United. Even the name sounds cool. I’m super excited.”


But how long can, or will, Ibrahimovic stay at Old Trafford, bearing in mind he is already thirty-four?

Replying, in the same interview, Zlatan further added,

“Let’s see what happens. You never know. It could be more than two, it could be more than three, let’s see how long I feel like I can perform. I will not be somewhere only because I am Ibrahimovic. I will be somewhere because I can perform and bring results.”

Interesting, can Zlatan still perform at this level when he`s thirty-seven going on thirty-eight?
