Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has hailed the impact of new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic following his fantastic debut goal for the Red Devils in their 5-2 win over Galatasaray in a pre-season friendly.
The 34-year-old Swede who joins Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Ibrahimovic as Jose Mourinho’s new signings for the season has already hit the ground running and according the Spanish international has helped in lifting the spirits of the team.
“It’s really good to have Zlatan already here, training with the team. 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,” de Gea told MUTV.
“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.
“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.”
