The 25-year-old was at the heart of Didier Deschamps' triumphant side in Russian Federation but returned to a hard situation at United after being dropped from Jose Mourinho's starting XI towards the end of last season.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for United during his one full season at the club, helping them to the EFL Cup and Europa League titles but seeing his campaign curtailed by a serious knee ligament injury.

Hugo Lloris lifted the trophy in Moscow in mid-July as Didier Deschamps' captain, and Pogba said he would continue being an influential figure in the squad even if he never replaced the Tottenham goalkeeper.

Despite taking on a key leadership role at the World Cup, a growing rift between Pogba and Mourinho saw the France global stripped of the United vice-captaincy last month.

"For me, a leader isn't someone who wears something on his arm, who puts on the captain's armband".
