Zlatan claims Premier League is begging him to stay another year

The future of Ibrahimovic remains uncertain beyond the end of the current campaign, and the Swede has warned that he does not have the time to wait for a club to rebuild before winning trophies.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says the Premier League is "begging" for him to remain in England for another season.

"How I feel today, I don't know if I will feel like this next year". I am open and nothing is done yet.

"I was really excited to come, we had to get up at 3am to get here but it's been so much fun, especially meeting Ibrahimovic", he beamed. "A lot of things have to be settled".

"I have proved what everyone has said is wrong", Ibrahimovic told BT Sport.

The 35 year old feels he is under a lot of pressure to make impact for his team to win matches. I came here to win.

He said: "I would still think [Arsenal] have a chance [to get into the top four], given what happened with Liverpool last night". United are now fifth in the league, four points behind their Manchester rivals and Zlatan would be determined to earn a top-four spot for his team.

The full team, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and captain Wayne Rooney, made dreams come true at the Aon Training Complex for fans who suffer from serious and life-limiting illnesses.

Team-mate Paul Pogba added: "When we were kids we all wanted a dream come true so we are doing this for them".

Speaking of his goals for the remainder of the Red Devils' season, Ibrahimovic was clear about his ambition. If you want to win bigger then you have to create bigger. I still came and I came to help. To make it better. To bring the team to higher views.

They face Belgian side Anderlecht in a two-legged quarter-final later this month, with the winners of the competition assured of a place at Europe's top table. There are still two months to go.

"One game can change a lot - suddenly you can be third, fourth, fifth, sixth".
