Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims the extreme pressure to chase every single trophy and emerge successful at Manchester United is felt 24 hours a day.

Although sixth-placed United now seems to be out of the Premier League title race, they are still in the hunt for the FA Cup triumph and Europa League along with the EFL Cup final challenge against Southampton.

And Ibrahimovic reveals the need to add to the club’s trophy cabinet is something he is feeling hard.

“If you present a top club like Manchester United that has a great history, a great character you feel the pressure because you have to keep up the rhythm of the club and keep making history,” he was quoted by ESPN.

“At a top club like Manchester [United] the pressure is 24 hours.”

Meanwhile, latest reports claim Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready to extend his contract at Old Trafford if the club qualifies for next season’s Champions League.

The giant Swede, who reunited with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford last summer, is thriving in English football, having already netted 20 goals for Manchester United since arriving.

Ibrahimovic is currently joint second in the Premier League’s top scorers, with 15, just one behind Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.

His one-year contract runs out at the end of this season and as per various reports he will look to help the Red Devils to Europe’s top club competition (Champions League) before deciding his future.

They have closed the gap on the top four to only 2 points in recent weeks, but they will be up against a Watford side buoyed by back-to-back victories.
