Zlatan Ibrahimovic has warned Manchester United that he has no intention of “wasting time” at the club as the uncertainty over his Old Trafford future persists.

The Swedish striker scored an stoppage-time penalty in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Everton to earn a point for an out-of-sorts United, notching his 27th goal of the season in the process.

Ibrahimovic signed a one-year contract the option of a further year’s extension upon arriving on a free transfer last summer, but he is yet to confirm where he will play next season.

“A lot of things have to be settled,” Ibrahimovic, who has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy, told MUTV. “It's not like I'm 20 and I have another five or 10 years.

“Probably I have one, two, three years so everything depends on what you want and what the club wants, what the vision of the club is because I said from day one I didn't come here to waste time, I came here to win.


“If you want to win bigger then you have to create bigger,” he added. “I came here without the Champions League. I came here with the team as it was. It was not a team that was favourite to win.

“I still came. I came to help. I came to do what I am able to do. To make it better. To bring the team to higher views so let's see what happens.”
