Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on his Manchester United debut

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his first appearance for Manchester United in Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Galatasaray.

The retired Sweden international agreed a deal to join the 20-time English champions earlier this month after the 34-year-old called time on his four-year career with Paris Saint-Germain in May.

Ibrahimovic netted an impressive 38 goals in 31 Ligue 1 games for the French champions last season as the towering striker won his fourth successive top-flight crown.

The veteran centre-forward started alongside United captain Wayne Rooney and France striker Anthony Martial up front against the Turkish side as Ibrahimovic pulled on the number nine shirt for the first time.

And Ibrahimovic took just four minutes to dispatch a scissor kick past the Galatasaray shot stopper to give United the lead before the Swedish legend was replaced at half-time.

Here is a selection of the best photos from Ibrahimovic’s debut for United.
