ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC is the signing of the season. That's according to Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher.

The Manchester United superstar has been in fine form since joining the Red Devils in the summer from Paris St-Germain.

The Swede has netted 16 goals in all competitions this campaign under Jose Mourinho.

And despite United landing the world's most expensive player in Paul Pogba, Carragher reckons his team-mate Ibrahimovic is the best buy.

"In a year in which we saw the transfer record broken, the best acquisition is the one that arrived at Manchester United for no fee," Carragher told the Daily Mail.

"I felt critics looked at Ibrahimovic, when he was dominating in Serie A and Ligue 1, with an element of suspicion because he didn’t do it in the Champions League.

"Things started to change when he scored four against England for Sweden during a friendly in November 2012, but now he has arrived in the Premier League, he hasn’t let us down, with 16 goals in 25 games.

"You cannot dispute he is box office. He is charismatic, powerful and a scorer of all kinds of goals.

"Zlatan has shown us why he has won 29 major honours - including 11 league titles - during his glittering career."
