Zlatan Ibrahimovic is wasting no time making an impact at Manchester United.
The giant Swede signed for United on a free from PSG earlier this summer, and naturally it was the biggest move of the transfer window so far.
And once the 34-year-old made his eagerly anticipated debut, he took just three minutes to do this:
So it looks like Zlatan won’t struggle to adapt to life in England if that goal is anything to go by.
United went on to win the game 5-2, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice, and further goals coming from Ibra, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata.
But another of the standout moments of the match was Marcus Rashford’s incredible run that led to Rooney’s second goal.
The teenager scampered past a defender and the Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera to win a penalty that had Ibrahimovic applauding from the bench.

After the game, Ibrahimovic got on with another of his favourite pastimes – teasing journalists.
Throughout his career, the Swede has always been one of the more interesting characters to interview, and talked openly about Man United’s record breaking move for Paul Pogba.
Speaking to the press, Ibrahimovic said:
It looks very interesting. Let’s see if Pogba will also come, then it will be even more interesting. We have something big going on.Advertisement
It was a good start [against Galatasaray] and fantastic to score my first goal for United in Sweden. I had good support. This is my country. It is impossible to fail in my country.
Good to see the former Barcelona striker is as confident as ever.
The move for Pogba continues to drag on, but it is thought that the world transfer record is set to be smashed sometime this week, with Ed Woodward and United locked in talks with the player, Juventus and agent Mino Raiola.
With Ibrahimovic in that kind of form alongside Rashford, a deal for Pogba could turn United into serious title contenders next season.
