Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he could stay at Manchester United for more than three years.

The Swede completed his free transfer from Paris St-Germain as his contract expired this summer and is set to make his Premier League debut for Man United away to Bournemouth.

He signed a one-year contract with the option to extend his stay and has hinted at the prospect of staying at Old Trafford for many more years to come.

“I don’t believe there is anyone who could say ‘no’ to Manchester United,” he said.

“It’s massive. It’s top level. I played for Barcelona and also for Juventus and AC Milan but I think this could be one step more.

“Turning down a challenge does not exist in my world. I have been in every country, now England, and that is why I find the adventure cool. I came, I won, I went. Hopefully I can do the same here.

“Let’s see what happens – you never know, it could be more than two [years], it could be more than three [years at United]. I will not be somewhere only because I am Ibrahimovic. I will be somewhere ­because I can perform and bring ­results. It’s about coming and winning and making Manchester United shine again.”

Ibrahimovic has won titles all over the world, but it’s clear he wants to prove himself in one of the most competitive leagues in the world, the Premier League.

He scored the winning goal in United’s Community Shield victory against Leicester City last weekend and will be hoping to have a massive impact during his time in England.

Zlatan scored a record-best 50 goals in 51 appearances last season at PSG across all competitions and if he’s able to re-find his form in England, then fans are set for an extremely exciting campaign.
