ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC INSISTS he is only getting better as the Swede reportedly inches closer to a Manchester United move.

The 34-year-old is coming off another impressive campaign at Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 50 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions.

Ibrahimovic, who is preparing for Euro 2016 with Sweden, is reportedly close to sealing a move to Old Trafford as his next destination.

The striker says he’s still getting better, despite approaching his 35th birthday: “Whether I am 34 or 35, I have never had a better season than this,” Ibrahimovic told the Daily Mirror.

“I am still developing as a player, but it’s all about getting the job done — and I do a hell of a job.”

Ibrahimovic said he had proven he was still capable of performing, having helped PSG to four straight Ligue 1 titles.

“I have proved that I still have a young mind,” he said. ”The mental part is 50% of football and that has never been a problem for me.”

Ibrahimovic and co. will take on Belgium, Italy and the Republic of Ireland in Group E at Euro 2016, which starts on 10 June.
