Goa, July 23: Manchester United legend Paul Scholes gives his opinion on the various players who have joined the English Premier League this season, namely Ilkay Gundogan, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Speaking to, Scholes said: "I think Gundogan is a really impressive player. I've seen a lot of him at Borussia Dortmund. I think he has a lot of injury problems, which could be a problem.

"If he can stay fit, I think he can be a fantastic player. I also think he is a great value for the money Manchester City paid for him. I think he is a bargain."

The German midfielder signed for Manchester City in June for £20m.

On the Henrikh Makhitaryan, he said: "I haven't seen too much of him. I think he is a good player."

On Zlatan's arrival at Old Trafford, the midfield maestro opined: "We don't know about Zlatan. He is 34 and probably going to play only for a year. Okay, he is a fit lad.

"I think with Ibrahimovic it is, he was playing in a team of PSG and they created a lot of chances. It was easy for him to score goals in that league.

"This Manchester United team isn't as good as the PSG team. It might be in time to come. He is going to have to do more for himself in the Manchester United team. More than he did at PSG."
