Manchester United have revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke ‘power records’ during his medical on Friday afternoon.
The 34-year-old was finally announced as a Manchester United player on Friday, after months of speculation regarding the striker’s future.
Ibrahimovic’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired at the end of June and after Sweden’s premature Euro 2016 exit last week, the respective parties were able to conclude all the formalities.
While Ibrahimovic’s shirt number is yet to be revealed by the club, they have announced an impressive record which the colossal forward broke this week.
According to the Red Devils, Ibrahimovic broke ‘power records’ during his medical at Carrington, before putting pen to paper on his one-year deal.
While Man Utd fail to reveal what exactly that means, one expects that the numbers the club’s medical team got back in regards to Ibrahimovic’s exercises at the complex were alarmingly impressive.
Generally, power tests can involve medicine ball work, as well as sprint or jump tests.
Ibrahimovic, whose blackbelt in Taekwondo may go some way to explaining his unparalleled fitness test results at United, won Ligue 1 in all four seasons with former club Paris Saint-Germain and has been tipped to shine at Manchester United under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho next season.
The pair worked together during their time at Inter Milan, although it was just for one season in Italy.
