Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed ‘nothing is done’ regarding his future at Manchester United, but admitted he has fulfilled the criteria to extend his contract.
The 35-year-old Swede joined Manchester United in the summer on a one-year contract with the option of another season extension.
Last week Jose Mourinho publicly expressed his confidence on Ibrahimovic saying he is convinced the striker would stay at Old Trafford even when the next season, but the 20-goal striker seems to be giving little away just yet.
Asked whether he has triggered the extension clause with the astonishing goals and appearances, the former PSG icon said as quoted by the Guardian: “Something like that. I have to score 100 goals.
“The option is already fulfilled. But there’s nothing done yet. ”
When asked if it was case of having to wait and see, Ibrahimovic said: “From my side. We’ll wait and see. Let’s see what happens.”
As well as amazing the Manchester United fans with a strong goal tally, Ibrahimovic has also had a huge influence on the Manchester United squad especially on the young members, with Anthony Martial looks to be benefiting from the striker’s knowledge and experience.
Having gone through a frustrating season and found himself warming the bench regularly, the 21-year-old marked his return to the starting eleven by setting up one and scoring the other as Manchester United defeated Watford 2-0 on Saturday.
“He’s not going around with his head down,” Ibrahimovic said of Martial. “He’s positive, training hard and has a lot of energy. Obviously he wants to play.
“It’s not like we go around to everybody and talk. It’s about the moment, when the situation is there. When we eat breakfast he sits beside me and we talk. Everybody talks to everybody.
“It’s not like you go to one and try to cheer him up. It’s a good atmosphere, the guys are very professional. Positive vibes.”
