'It's something that motivates me' - Ibrahimovic loves Guardiola challenge

'It's something that motivates me' - Ibrahimovic loves Guardiola challenge

As things stand now, the chances of Manchester United making the UEFA Champions League cut next year look dim.

Ibrahimovic has netted 26 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for United this season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted he is "happy" at Manchester United despite continued uncertainty over his Old Trafford future. "Inter had not won the league for 17 years and I told myself: 'If I join Inter and win, then I am going to go down in this club's history'".

"In order to raise my level, I had to come to England and prove to everyone what I could do". If I can win in a situation like this, it means I've done my job well.

"I didn't want to leave Milan".

He signed a one year deal at Old Trafford, containing the option of another year, and both parties have already talked about extending his stay following an impressive start. "He works you so that when you are on the pitch, you give 200 percent, and this is what I needed at my age".

According to Chris Bascombe of the Daily Telegraph, the club were ready to make Ibrahimovic the highest-paid player in the division.

"I could've gone to China and put my feet up, but I need a challenge that will motivate me".

But with Ibrahimovic set to serve the final two matches of a three-game ban against Middlesbrough and West Brom in the Premier League for elbowing Bournemouth's Tyrone Mings, Neville believes it is a flawless opportunity for Rashford to prove his quality, having impressed in the 1-0 FA Cup quarter-final loss at Chelsea.

Both men are now in the Premier League, with Guardiola coach of Manchester City, while the Swede plays for city rivals, Manchester United.
