Manchester United have been a club in a transitional phase ever since Sir Alex Ferguson left at the end of the 2012-13 season. His successor David Moyes didn't last a season and the club turned to Louis van Gaal who got sacked at the end of the last season.

The iconic Jose Mourinho was brought in as his replacement. Since his arrival, Manchester United have wasted no time in the transfer market having roped up central defender Eric Bailly from Villareal, Bundesliga Player of the Season 2015-16 Henrikh Mkhitaryan who is a very versatile attacking midfielder and the one and only Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United’s success this season will depend on Swedish legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic and fans are expecting a lot from him. A man who has a great relationship with Mourinho since their days at Inter Milan, fans will expect the chemistry to work wonders. He knows how to pull the crowd and is expected to deliver his best. Tall, agile and good in the air, his passing vision, ball control and finishing ability makes him a match winner on his day. Known for his spectacular strikes, which he scores with ease, fans at Old Trafford and around the globe will be expecting to see some more of those eye-catching finishes.

The Swede posted a video on Instagram of his personal training in order to boost the confidence of the fans so as to show them they're gearing up for the next season in the best possible manner.

The club’s authorities have been forced to act quickly to bring in new and big names in coaching and player personnel. A coach of the stature of Mourinho and players like Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan know how to bring success to a club having performed pretty well at the highest levels. Signing a player like Ibrahimovic is a big boost as he's one who's very much experienced and has leadership abilities which will help the club bring out success once again.

They have important pre-season games which include Borussia Dortmund (July 22) and Manchester City (July 25) in Shanghai and Beijing respectively, followed by Galatasaray (July 30) in Gothenburg.

This season is very vital for Manchester United and it is not getting any easier as Pep Guardiola has joined Manchester City and Antonio Conte is at Chelsea to add to the host of big name coaches in the Premier League. The relationship of Mourinho and Ibrahimovic will play a crucial factor in the success of the club.
