Zlatan Ibrahimovi?'s status as a Manchester United player has been confirmed, and opinion is already divided among onlookers.
Many feel that Ibrahimovi?, at 34, is past his best, and that his place in any prospective United line-up would be better off given to a young prospect such as Marcus Rashford. Indeed, to take that point further, plenty of dissenters feel that the former AC Milan and FC Barcelona striker's arrival at Old Trafford will hinder the development of 18-year-old Rashford and 20-year-old Anthony Martial.
The £200,000 per week that Ibrahimovi? will collect next season, would surely be better spent on a younger, longer-term option for the centre-forward position, right?
And surely the player's infamous ego will serve only to be a negative influence in the United dressing room, upsetting the applecart?
Well, no, quite the contrary. In fact, Ibrahimovi?, at this stage of his career, is exactly the striker

It's remarkable to think that just 12 months ago Adam Nagy hadn't even started a professional game at club or international level. Fast forward to now, however, and all that's well and truly changed as he's embarked on a rapid rise that's been nothing short of spectacular.
After enjoying a breakout season with Ferencvaros, which culminated in him winning the Hungarian league title, the 21-year-old sensation didn't take long to also make his mark with the national team. Since debuting in September 2015 against Northern Ireland, his showings have been so impressive that he's quickly grown into an integral member of the mighty Magyars side.
After his brilliant string of displays at the Euros, where the gifted midfielder was quite possibly Hungary's best performer over the course of the tournament, he's amazingly continued on his wicked upward trajectory. Despite his relatively limited experience playing at the elite level, it's been

"My statistics speak for themselves. Several people have told me that I play better through adversity, but I don't always want to have to be fighting against the mudslingers," explained a vindicated Olivier Giroud after scoring in France's opening game of the Euros.
That goal against Romania was remarkably his eighth goal in his previous eight matches for France, but by virtue of not finding the back of the net since, those mudslingers have returned.
Giroud's just one of those players who's constantly dividing opinion. On his day, he's nigh on unplayable, but when he's not firing, he's incredibly infuriating. To his defence, however, the Arsenal forward is still an excellent footballer, albeit a vastly underapprecciated one.
Although he's notched up one goal and one assist in the tournament so far, it's unfair to solely judge him purely on statistics, for his contribution extends far beyond this metric. Qualities such
