“For me it’s a no-brainer if they can get Ibrahimovic,” Henry told Sky Sports. “I’ve played with the man, he’s a great guy, professional, funny.

“When he goes on the field he’s an animal but out of it he’s a class act. I cannot say anything bad about him and I think he can be a success for United and the Premier League.”

Ibrahimovic enjoyed his most productive season in France during his final campaign, netting 52 goals in all competitions as PSG lifted the league title for the fourth time in a row.
