Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he’s happy at Manchester United but refused to rule out a move to Napoli in the future.
He’s been incredible at Man United this season after joining from Paris Saint-Germain last summer on a free move, silencing critics with over 25 goals across all competitions this campaign already.
Many believed the 35-year-old would not be able to cope with the intensity of the Premier League, however, following his impressive start, Jose Mourinho is keen on extending his contract which expires at the end of the year.
Speaking about his Old Trafford future, Ibrahimovic opened up about a potential move to Serie A side Napoli.
“You never know, but I’m happy here,” he said. “Let’s just wait and see what happens.
“My family was very happy in Milan. I spoke with [Milan general manager Adriano] Galliani and [president Silvio] Berlusconi and they had convinced me to join them with great desire and motivation.
“We had a great side. When we won the title, I remember Galliani coming into the dressing room with an Inter shirt in his hands and he ripped off the badge for the titleholders and told us: ‘This is yours now.’
“I didn’t want to leave Milan. When you’re happy, you’re just happy. I just wanted to be playing and I still had in my mind what had happened at Barcelona, where I hadn’t been comfortable.”
He revealed how much value he places on happiness and as a player that’s won titles all over the world, there isn’t much that will push to a move away, apart from looking for what’s best for his family.
Zlatan has been in the game since a teenager and although wages in China must seem enticing, disrupting his family’s life to settle abroad for a pay increase doesn’t seem like an option, especially when he’s already earning around £260,000-per-week.
