LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is relishing his time at the Premier League club and is in talks to extend his contract, saying he "never leaves a job unfinished".

In November, manager Jose Mourinho said United planned to extend his initial one-season deal by another year but according to media reports Ibrahimovic wants a two-year contract.

Ahead of the league game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, the Swede told reporters: "I enjoy... I go in, I go for the kill and I go out. And when I go out there are no complaints, that's what I do. I never leave a job unfinished.

"Let's see what happens, we are talking. I have an option for another year, I want to do great as long as I'm here, so let us see, there is a lot of time."

The 35-year-old has scored 26 goals in 41 appearances for United since joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last year, helping them to lift the League Cup in February, and reach the last eight of the Europa League.

United, who are fifth in the table, face a challenging April with nine games on the schedule including the Manchester derby and hosting runaway league leaders Chelsea.
