The big Belgian will link up with the superstar Swede later this year after the latter confirmed he had re-signed with Manchester United earlier today.
The first match together will have to wait as Ibrahimovic continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.
But with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic arriving over the summer, the 35-year-old thinks Jose Mourinho’s squad is stronger this year than last despite the departure of Wayne Rooney to Everton.
“With these three new players the team is stronger”
Ibrahimovic told ESPN: “Yeah, yeah. I’m happy he [Lukaku] came.
“I think the team is much stronger this season than last season.
“Obviously we lost Rooney as a legend for the club but we took three new players and with these three new players the team is stronger.
“For the first year going, the team has been winning some trophies and learning the sacrifice you have to do to win the trophies and the mental part and that is what the coach brought to the team, the mental thing, and me as a player also.
“The pressure you put to win the objectives you want to win and signing Lukaku makes us even stronger because he has different quality from me as a striker and Rashford as a striker.
“He is a powerful guy and will bring some extra quality in the game.”
