Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted that he has set his sights on helping Manchester United win the title and also mentoring young players at Old Trafford. The striker joined the Red Devils on 1 July, a day after he confirmed that he will join the 20-time English champions.

United have young strikers in the squad and the list includes the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Will Keane and James Wilson. The former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star has admitted that he is not just keen on improving Rashford and Martial, but also other players in the squad as he looks to help United win the title next season.

"I think so [My experience can help young strikers]. I have experience from different cultures and different team-mates, world class team-mates, so I learned from then. First of all it is up to every player. If you are professional and working hard enough then you will succeed," Ibrahimovic told United's official website.

"You will become a top player. I will do my best to help everybody, not only the two names you gave. Even the club, to bring it up to where it belongs and that is at the top of the table."
