The Swede has been a revelation for United since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer.
The 35-year-old has netted 26 goals in 38 games, including a double in Sunday’s EFL Cup final victory over Southampton, to make a mockery of those who doubted whether he could handle the rigours of English football.
United are desperate to activate the 12-month option they have on Ibrahimovic’s contract and Jose Mourinho told fans at the weekend to camp outside his house to make him stay.
But Ibrahimovic has been stalling over a new deal and his agent, Mino Raiola, refused to rule out a summer exit when he joined Jim White on talkSPORT earlier this week.
However, according to the Daily Mirror, the veteran striker DOES want to stay at the club and is simply seeking a better deal.
He reportedly wants a rise on his £300,000-a-week wages and a two-year contract, taking him up to the age of 37.
