Before he revealed his pick for the top striker in England, he first let everyone know that he proved everybody wrong.
Jose Mourinho's men could only managed a goalless draw with West Brom four days previous, and they actually had Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thank for salvaging a point against Ronald Koeman's side, with his last-gasp penalty extending their unbeaten league run to 20 matches.
"I'm 35, a lot of things have to be settled".
The Blues' last two results have all but ended their hopes of making the top four this season, whilst their city rivals Liverpool have gone from strength to strength, and now sit in third position in the Premier League table, 10 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea. If we are far from each other or close to each other, there is no news.
"Eric is Eric, Zlatan is Zlatan, so I come with a different package, I come with what I'm able to do", Ibrahimovic said in an interview with BT Sport.
Hoffenheim end Bayern's 20-match unbeaten run
Hoffenheim strengthen their hold on third place and are set to make their Champions League debut next season. Despite being on the back foot, Aubameyang missed another great chance when he struck Adler in the face.
United want to sign Atletico Madrid and France striker, Antoine Griezmann, this summer and Ibrahimovic left the club under no illusions that he expects them to make a statement in the transfer market.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic lists Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku as the Premier League's best strikers, and he has quite an interesting reason for not including himself in the upper echelon. "It's not like I'm 20 and I have another five or 10 years [to play]".
Championship clubs paid a total of £42.4m to agents during the period, although nearly £16m of that is accounted for by two clubs relegated from the Premier League last season. There are still talks so let's see what will happen. "Then you look at another angle and it looks just slightly off". It was not a team that was favourites to win but I still came.
"We are doing everything to create chances and to take our chances", he added.
Including assists, Ibrahimovic has been directly involved in 20 league goals this season, equating to 46.5% of his side's overall total and as a result, he would be an extremely hard person to replace should he depart. I'm open but there is nothing done yet.
