The Red Devils signed Ibrahimovic on a one-year deal in July after the striker left French side Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season following four successful years in France.

Ibrahimovic has already impressed at his new club, scoring the winner in United’s Community Shield match against Leicester City last week.

And the striker admits he is already thinking about potentially staying on at United past his current one-year contract.

“I don’t believe there is anyone who could say ‘no’ to Manchester United,” he told Sky Sports.

“Even the name sounds cool. It’s massive. It’s top level. I played for Barcelona and also for Juventus and Milan, it’s the same thing, but I think this could be one step more.

“Turning down a challenge does not exist in my world. I have been in every country, now England, and this is why I find the adventure cool. I came, I won, I went. Hopefully I can do the same here.

“Let’s see what happens. You never know. It could be more than two (years), it could be more than three, let’s see how long I feel like I can perform.

“I will not be somewhere only because I am Ibrahimovic. I will be somewhere because I can perform and bring results. It’s about coming and winning and making Manchester United shine again.”
