Rooney insists he is here to stay

Former Arsenal defender Keown believes Ibrahimovic has blossomed into Manchester United's leader up front over the course of the season.

Rooney, 31, has featured sporadically under Jose Mourinho this season and has been heavily linked with a return to former club Everton.

The skipper committed his immediate future to United in February amid interest from China, saying he wanted to remain at the club during this "exciting time" - a period that could soon bring Europa League glory.

"I don't think there is any doubt about the player, his commitment or his desire to play football - that has been proven over 15 years. He is not the player he was, but he is the most under-appreciated footballer we have seen in English football", Salvage told BBC. "That's what I've done and when called upon I'll try my best to help the team".

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has pledged his future to the club despite growing speculation of leaving the Red Devils this summer.

Ibrahimovic's season was cut short in April following his serious knee injury in a 2-1 win against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals.

He says his ideal scenario is to see out the year left on his contract - and possibly take up the option for another season after that - but he admits he wants to play more, having started only 22 of the 59 games United have played in all competitions so far this season. The more I play, the better I feel I can help the team.

"This is a European semi-final, it's the biggest chance to win a European competition in the last two or three years".

Martin Keown has claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks fitter and younger than Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.

. "It's a risky position we're in but we've got a good chance of going to the final if we play to our best".

"This club will be successful under Jose Mourinho", he added. "We're not far away from challenging in the Premier League again".
