De Gea: My first impressions of new Man Utd teammate Zlatan

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has welcomed the arrival of new teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

De Gea, speaking with MUTV, outlined his belief that it has boosted everyone at the club.

“It’s really good to have Zlatan already here, training with the team,” he said. “You can see he’s a top player, he’s massive, very big, with a lot of quality and of course he is a top striker.

“I think he will settle in very quickly. You can look and it seems like he has been playing here many years already and the same with the other guys we’ve signed [Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan]. They are playing really well, their training has been top and I think that we have signed really good players.”

Asked specifically if Zlatan and Mourinho’s two other signings have provided a boost, De Gea said: “Yeah that gives us more energy when you see players like them coming to Manchester and now we have to train all together, trying to be fit as soon as possible and now we’re going to play the first game against Leicester City with the Community Shield up for grabs.”
