Zlatan Ibrahimovic is willing to extend his contract at Manchester United should the club qualify for next season's Champions League, according to reports.

The Swede, who joined José Mourinho at Old Trafford last summer, has eased into English football, having already scored 20 goals for Manchester United since arriving.

Ibrahimovic's one-year deal runs out at the end of the season and, according to The Sun, he will look to guide United to Europe's top club competition before deciding his future.

The 35-year-old's agent Mino Raiola has also hinted that Ibrahimovic may be interested in a move back to Italy in the summer, having played for both AC Milan and Inter Milan.

"He's always been in love with Naples and the passion of the Neapolitans and I've always said that openly because he grew up in a family which was to the Neapolitans and then with me," Raiola told Radio CRC.

"I know that [Aurelio] De Laurentiis [the Napoli president] knows him, and with Zlatan you never know what could happen."

Ibrahimovic is joint second in the Premier League's top scorers, with 15, behind Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United sits sixth in the Premier League table, two points off Arsenal in fourth, the first Champions League qualification place.
