Martial: Ibrahimovic would improve us

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial believes free agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic's experience makes him a valuable signing for the club.

Ibrahimovic is available on a free transfer after refusing to renew his deal with Paris Saint-Germain following the end of the club football season and he has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils.

United's struggles upfront last season have made signing a top striker a priority for the club and the Sweden captain fits the bill perfectly.

Even though the move would increase competition for places, Martial is adamant signing Ibrahimovic would be a great move for the club.

"Zlatan is a good player and a great striker – he would improve us with his experience," he told reporters before also praising new manager Jose Mourinho. "Mourinho is a great coach, one of the best in the world."

Martial is preparing with the France squad ahead of the European Championship that begins later this month. He picked up a thigh injury in their previous international friendly against Cameroon, but is still expecting to play some part in their final friendly before the Euros against Scotland on Saturday.

"It's a little difficult as we've had two training sessions a day," he added. "I talked about this with the coach and we've tried to ease my training sessions. Now I feel much better."
