Jamie Carragher: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the signing of the season

Jamie Carragher believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been Manchester United’s signing of the season.

He has been in fine form since his arrival from Paris St-Germain in the summer and he’s done a brilliant job of silencing his critics in England.

The big Swede has netted 16 goals in all competitions this campaign, with 10 of his goals coming in our last nine games.

Speaking about the situation, Carragher reckons Ibrahimovic is the best buy from Jose Mourinho.

“In a year in which we saw the transfer record broken, the best acquisition is the one that arrived at Manchester United for no fee,” he said.

“I felt critics looked at Ibrahimovic, when he was dominating in Serie A and Ligue 1, with an element of suspicion because he didn’t do it in the Champions League.

“Things started to change when he scored four against England for Sweden during a friendly in November 2012, but now he has arrived in the Premier League, he hasn’t let us down, with 16 goals in 25 games.

“You cannot dispute he is box office. He is charismatic, powerful and a scorer of all kinds of goals.

“Zlatan has shown us why he has won 29 major honours – including 11 league titles – during his glittering career.”

Mourinho landed the world’s most expensive player in Paul Pogba, but there’s no doubting Ibrahimovic’s impact in the side.

Hopes are he can continue his impressive run as he’s played a huge role in our recent results.
