Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given his first impressions of life at Manchester United, and it sounds like the new signing is very happy indeed at Old Trafford.

The 34-year-old Swede signed for United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain at the start of July, and has enjoyed a fine start to his United career with two goals in two competitive games.

And speaking to Sky Sports, Ibrahimovic suggested he was happy enough with life under Jose Mourinho that he could extend his stay for longer than the one year currently on his present contract.

"Let's see what happens," Ibrahimovic said when asked whether he might consider staying for more than a year. "You never know. It could be more than two, it could be more than three, let's see how long I feel like I can perform. I will not be somewhere only because I am Ibrahimovic. I will be somewhere because I can perform and bring results."

Ibrahimovic scored the winning goal in the FA Community Shield against Leicester City earlier in August, and followed that up with a debut English Premier League goal against Bournemouth on Sunday.
