Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already broken a record at Old Trafford
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been at Manchester United for less than a day and has already given supporters of the club around the world something to cheer and look forward to. Earlier today, the official Twitter account of Manchester United confirmed that Zlatan had already started setting new benchmarks at the club. He broke a long-standing record even at Old Trafford even though he has not officially played a game for them yet.
Zlatan is yet to don his United colours in a game and already he seems to have broken the power record during his medical at the grand old club. This feat confirms and justifies the expectations from him that have undoubtedly been building up as the world waits with interest to see how he fits in Manchester United.
His signing means that Ibrahimovic is reunited with his old boss Jose Mourinho under whom he played during his time in Inter Milan. He has already spoken to MUTV, following the official announcement of his deal by the club, regarding the influence the presence of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United had on his decision to join the club.
"I have great memories," Ibrahimovic said. "The only regret I had with Jose was that it was a short time with him. I had one season. We won together, we enjoyed it together, we had a great time together and I learned a lot.”
The veteran Swedish striker looks to bring experience to Manchester United's young attacking side and will be working alongside the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. Keeping in accordance to quirks that are quintessentially associated with him, it is rather hoped that his short-term association with the club will be enough for him to establish himself as a successful signing.
Today, he arrived for his medical by helicopter no less and then went on to break a record. He already seems to be quite compatible with the legendary status the club obviously commands. There have been some speculations about him having already passed the peak of his career but at 34, this man shows no intention of slowing down; and his “power record” stats confirm it.
Even though one cannot be quite sure as to what exactly a “power record” is, we must assume that what Zlatan did must have impressed the officials of his new club enough to make it known to the world and add more expectations to the already long list which exists.
Lately, Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan today.
