With the additions of Lukaku, Lindelof, Matic, and the resigning of Ibrahimovic, it is possible that Manchester United will be a tough team to beat.

Ibrahimovic signed a new one-year deal and is expected to return to first-team action in January and Lukaku is delighted to have him back in the fold.

When a top four finish was looking unlikely, Jose Mourinho turned his focus to the Europa League as a means to get into the Champions League.

"I think when some people say "great draw", I don't think they know the difficulties of football, I think they don't know the history of these teams and what we are going to face, so for me, it's a hard draw and any team can get points in any match", he said.

Lukaku has kicked off his debut season for United in sublime style, netting three times in as many Premier League outings.

Striker James Wilson, who has returned after a long layoff with a knee injury, has also been included on United's A list for the competition. "We need his personality", he said. I think Zlatan is going to bring us a lot.

"I think they look like [Premier League] favourites, but it is not a sprint, it is a marathon - you have a lot of competition, a lot of games", Saha told reporters.

United will kick off the Champions League campaign at home to Basel on Tuesday 12 September.

Asked if Lukaku would win the golden boot this season, Saha - a victor of two Premier Leagues and the Champions League with United - said: "I think so, he looks like he has got all the players around him to fit him".

United start their Champions League campaign with a home game against Basel on September 12.

The Special One will be hoping United can replicate their convincing league start in Europe.
