Sign him up, Jose! Paul Ince says United should sign striker he's like Eric Cantona


Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has urged his former club to complete the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Sweden international is expected to become Jose Mourinho's second summer signing at Old Trafford.

And the Englishman believes the 34-year-old would be as influential as club legend Eric Cantona if he joins.

"Eric Cantona was a lot younger when he arrived at Old Trafford but Zlatan can still do it at 34," Ince told the Manchester Evening News.

"He's got the stature like Cantona, the flicks and tricks, he'll puff out his chest and take the whole stage on board like Eric did if he signs.

"I don't want it to become about him though, you don't want team-mates to be over-awed.

"When you looked down our line up as we marched out and there were figures and characters like Cantona, Roy Keane, Bryan Robson and Peter Schmeichel - you had players who made up a man's team. A team of winners.

"Then you had Fergie walking down the touchline as well. I think we beat a lot of teams before we even kicked off.

"There was a winning mentality and an aura that frightened opponents.

"That aura has gone in recent seasons, teams could easily take three points at Old Trafford.

"There won't be another Sir Alex again but Jose is the nearest you'll get.

"There is nobody better than him, he's what United have needed."
