The big Swede has won trophies around the world and will undoubtedly be an inspirational figure around the club.
He was a senior professional with Malmo before Rashford was even born in 1996 and the Englishman will be hoping to follow in his footsteps.
“It has been amazing,” he said.
“We’ve got a lot of world-class players in the team, especially in the forwards like Zlatan and Wayne. For the young lads, we can’t ask for anything better.
“The likes of me, Anthony and Jesse – watching these forwards play and how they train, their mentality, is so important.
“You can’t ask for more. Zlatan is very easy to speak to and he’s easy to get along with. The way he approaches every game is about winning.
“He wants to win, regardless of the opponent, whether we are home or away, whatever the odds, he always wants to find a way to win.
“That mentality is what you need to be at the top level. That is where he is and where he has been for years.”
Rashford has continued his spectacular climb under Jose Mourinho and despite being 17 years younger than Ibrahimovic, is still only one goal behind him this season.
He was one of the few bright sparks under Louis van Gaal and I can’t wait to see his development under one of the best strikers in the word.
