Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims to be responsible for Paul Pogba's transfer back to Manchester United
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken to social media to claim that he is solely responsible for bringing Paul Pogba back to Manchester United this summer.
The France midfielder signed a five-year contract with the Red Devils on Tuesday after being relentlessly linked with a move back to the club throughout the summer months.
Pogba is now back at United and has been getting used to life at the Premier League club for a second time after training with his team-mates at Carrington this week.
The 23-year-old will definitely not feature during United’s Premier League opener at Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon because he is suspended.
Ibrahimovic is also a new arrival at United after having signed for the Red Devils on a free transfer earlier in the summer following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain.
And the Swedish striker was quick to claim that he is the man responsible for Pogba’s world-record move back to the club as he posed for a picture with him after training.
Ibrahimovic posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday morning and wrote: “Finally my shirt brought him back. @paulpogba”
Manchester United finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal.
