Jose Mourinho has seen his side complete three signings in the summer transfer window as defender Eric Bailly, midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic have all moved to Old Trafford. The former two started in the first two pre-season fixtures.

Ibrahimovic is yet to feature for United and will make his debut in United shirt in his homeland on Saturday. The ex-Barcelona and PSG striker has already trained with the first team and have travelled with the squad to Sweden. The 34-year-old will be the star attraction for United when his side take on Galatasaray this weekend.

United's opponents have played three pre-season fixtures so far, where they have managed to win the two of them, while settling for a draw in the other fixture. Galatasaray will be hoping they keep the unbeaten run intact when they take on the Premier League giants.
