Cape Town - Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic revealed his recovery from a knee injury is going well, but dodged questions about his future at Old Trafford.

Ibrahimovic arrived at the Red Devils from Paris Saint-Germain on a 12-month contract at the start of the season amid doubts about his age and whether he would be able to keep up with the speed of the Premier League.

However, he proved his class once again by going on to score 28 goals for the club in 41 appearances in all competitions, becoming one of their shining lights in a difficult season.

He missed the last few weeks of the campaign with a knee injury but revealed he is nearing a return to full fitness.

"I work hard. I'll be back in a few weeks," he told Sky Italia before addressing queries about his future by stating: "We'll have to see. Good question."

He went on to lament his inability to take part in the 2-0 Europa League final win over Ajax on Wednesday night.

"I regret not being able to play this game. It is normal, I wanted to be on the pitch but the situation is this," he added.

"I had a different role, I supported the team, but what matters is that we won.

"That's the most important thing because this is a collective trophy.

"You win and lose together. Now we raised another trophy, which is the third this year of the five available."
