Champions League: Why Barcelona don't want to face Manchester United – Valverde

Zlatan compares himself to King Kong

He may be out of a job at the moment, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still very much in the money - or on the money, as the case may be.

The 35-year-old striker made 46 appearances for Jose Mourinho's side last season, scoring 28 goals in all competitions.

"I've been here, we won and we want to grow up as a player and a leader as well".

"He's for sure the one with more experience because he's the one that played Champions League final, Euro final, Europa League final".

And Pogba still holds the belief that Ibra's presence around the club makes him an active leader for the younger players.

Whenever Ibrahimovic does return he'll need a new shirt number after new signing Romelu Lukaku took over the number nine earlier this month, with the veteran Swede's permission, of course.

Firstly he looked utterly nonplussed about being immortalised on a Swedish banknote like it was an everyday occurrence, only to follow up by assuming a state of undress and comparing himself to King Kong.

Pogba also said it was a "big challenge for me" to return United to the Champions League when he came back to Old Trafford after his time at Juventus.

"We are speaking, we are exchanging ideas, but the most important thing is what is best for the player".

"We won three trophies last season, so I hope that we are going to continue that way and improve".
