Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already settled into life at Manchester United and is fitting in well at the club, according to David de Gea.

The Swede announced himself in spectacular fashion after scoring with a scissor kick against Galatasaray, just minutes into his debut in a pre-season friendly at the weekend.

Ibrahimovic has enjoyed a prolific career in front of goal and in terms of winning trophies. The 34-year-old was one of Jose Mourinho's first major signings as Red Devils boss, when he joined the club from Paris Saint-Germain following Sweden's Euro 2016 elimination.

Nonetheless, de Gea couldn't be happier having a player of Ibrahimovic's calibre in the United dressing room.

"It's really good to have Zlatan here training with the team," De Gea said as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"You can see he's a top player, very big, with lots of quality and of course he is a top striker.

"You can look and it seems he is playing here many years already."
