And he appears to have the right men with him too, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic vowing to be the new God of Old Trafford.
Ibrahimovic was bestowed with the title of Prince by Eric Cantona, after the former Manchester United legend suggested no one could take his own mantle.
“There can only be one King in Manchester. You can be the prince if you want to,” said Cantona after the talismanic Frenchman welcomed the signing of the Swedish superstar.
But in typical style, Ibrahimovic has gone one better to place himself at the top of the pedestal. “I heard what he [Cantona] said and I congratulate him because I have always admired him. But he should know that I will not be the King of Manchester. I will be the God of Manchester.”
