Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s odds on staying at Manchester United have been cut further after he suggested he had ‘unfinished’ business at Old Trafford.
The Swedish legend has enjoyed a brilliant first season in England with 26 goals to his name, including two in the League Cup final win over Southampton.
But the 35-year-old has not quite inspired a title challenge, and United want him to stay for another season – and he is now considering his options, and he has admitted that he does not like to leave any ‘job unfinished’
“When I go out there is no complaints, that’s what I do. I never leave a job unfinished,” the Swede told the Manchester Evening News.
“I always go in, do my job, and in the way that is a fair play, a fair deal, that is what I do.
“We are talking. I have an option for another year, I want to do great as long as I’m here, so let us see, there is a lot of time.”

His boss Jose Mourinho is calm about whether Zlatan will stay but clearly would love him to commit to another year.
“I am just calm and waiting for the decision,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.
“If the decision is for him to stay and he is happy with that, we are delighted with that. If his decision is to leave and try to find a different challenge, I will be also happy for him.
“He is [a big part of our success this season] but the human being is more important than the player and the team. If his decision is to leave and try to be happy with his family and have a different reality, so be it.”
Bookmakers have clearly already made up their minds on the future of Ibrahimovic, and SkyBet are as short as 1/6 for him to still be with United next season.
