Clearly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a reputation. And rightly so. His swagger has echoes of Eric Cantona and the Swede's mere presence would inspire belief. After all, Ibrahimovic was lifting league titles with Ajax before Marcus Rashford had started school. He is trusted by Jose Mourinho - a man he claims to speak to on the phone "every day" - and could be an important conduit in a dressing room curious about the new coach, rather than in his thrall. An experienced figure "willing to kill" for Mourinho might well prove vital.
