Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola has revealed the striker will be at Old Trafford next season, if the Red Devils qualify for the next season's Champions League.

Jose Mourinho's team can qualify for the Europe's elite club competition by finishing the 2016/17 season in top four. Also, they can seal a berth in the competition by winning the Europa League this term.

The 20-time English champions are currently fifth in the league table with 57 points from 30 games and trail fourth place Manchester City by four points with a game in hand. In the Europa League, they have settled for a 1-1 draw against Anderlecht in the first leg of the quarter-final clash in Belgium on 13 April.

United need to overcome the Belgium outfit to make it to the last four of the Europa League. In the Premier League, they face tough competition from Arsenal, City and Liverpool for a place in the top four.

Raiola, who also represents Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, claims his client Ibrahimovic has set his sights on winning the Champions League.

"Zlatan knows what he wants to do. He wants to play in the final of the Champions League, and if possible to win it," Raiola told RMC, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

"We're not going to be pressed and we'll take the right decision. Zlatan has desire and he is motivated. He has no need for a financial motivation to continue; he wants to prove that he can still play at the highest level.

"Zlatan has priorities, such as finishing the season well and playing a good European Championship. The rest is up to me."

The 35-year-old moved to United as a free agent and signed a one-year contract, with an option to extend it by one more year. Ibrahimovic has been in fine form for the Old Trafford club this term, scoring 28 goals in all competitions.
