London - Experienced Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes Manchester United are a step above the likes of former clubs Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan.

The 34-year-old has been taken aback by the warm welcome he has received from the club's supporters, and says several aspects have led him to believe that the Old Trafford outfit is a cut above all of his former employers.

"The way everything is done here. When I come to the training ground it's massive," Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports.

"The history of the club, the players that have been playing here, all the attention the club gets, fans everywhere. I go right I see the fans, I go left I see them, wherever I go I see the fans.

"It's massive. It's top level. I played for Barcelona and also Juventus and Milan, it's the same thing, but I think this could be one step more."

Ibrahimovic admits he has been quite fortunate to represent the aforementioned clubs, and is hoping to add to an already extensive collection of trophies and accolades in the coming campaign.

"To have the luck to play for such a big clubs, to play with big players, I don't know how many players have had that luck," he added.

"I had it, I won with them, and hopefully I can do it here."

Despite being in the twilight of his career, big things are expected of the big Swede in the 2016/17 season, especially after he netted the winning goal against Leicester city in the Community Shield.
