Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reportedly reject a sensational £120m offer from China.
The Swede has apparently wasted no time in settling into life at Manchester United this term, following a free summer transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
Ibrahimovic’s double strike in Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over West Brom on Saturday took him to 11 goals in 16 league matches.
And it now looks he has every intention of enjoying his spell at Old Trafford, despite the advances from China.

According to the Daily Mail, a £120m offer has been pushed forward from the Far East for the 35-year-old striker.
But Ibrahimovic, who snubbed a great opportunity of a switch to the Chinese Super League in the summer, is looking to stay on at United.
The experienced striker penned a one-year contract following his high-profile move from the French giants, and Jose Mourinho has already made it clear the club will hand him a one-year extension.
Ibrahimovic is really working hard to help Mourinho bring back the golden days to Old Trafford, before considering any move to China in 2018.
After United’s victory against West Brom, Ibrahimovic said: “I’m here. I’m here to play. I want to play. As a football player you get blind sometimes because you have to listen to your body. As long as he needs me and the team needs me I’m here.”
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho’s admiration for his summer recruit rose to new heights on Saturday, as he spoke about the Swede’s “superman” mentality after his latest match-winning display at West Brom.
Earlier in the week, Mourinho had described Ibrahimovic as “undroppable” and he was quite delighted to be shown another fabulous illustration as the goal-machine netted both goals in their 2-0 win at the Hawthorns.
