Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready to "finish what I started" after the veteran Sweden striker turned down other offers to re-sign for Manchester United on a one-season deal.

The 35-year-old netted 28 goals for the Red Devils after a free transfer move following his departure from Paris St. Germain last summer.

Ibrahimovic's campaign, though, was prematurely cut short by a knee ligament injury suffered in the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Anderlecht on April 20.

However, after initially looking set to depart Old Trafford having not been offered another year, the Premier League club confirmed yesterday a new deal had now been agreed.

Ibrahimovic posted on his social media accounts a photo-shopped image of himself, dressed in angelic robes, arm-wrestling Satan and declared: "I UNITED it @manchesterunited".

Ibrahimovic said: "I'm here to finish what I started. There were a couple of teams reaching out, but I had such a great year with United, we won three trophies. Fantastic guys, great club."
