Seems like Ibrahimovic has been with Man Utd many years – De Gea

David De Gea has praised the impact made by new Manchester United recruit Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker only recently linked up with the Red Devils for pre-season training while talking less than four minutes to open his scoring account with a fabulous goal against Galatasaray on the weekend.

Ibrahimovic is one of three big signings made by Jose Mourinho thus far, following Eric Billy and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Old Trafford, and De Gea says all three have been immediately impressive.

“It’s really good to have Zlatan already here, training with the team,” De Gea told MUTV.

“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.

“They are playing really well, their training has been top and I think that we have signed really good players.

“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.”
