Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a sly dig at Arsenal following their League Cup final win over Southampton on Sunday. Rooney reaffirmed his future to United last week, rather than moving to China before its deadline-day on Tuesday, but it is a commitment from Ibrahimovic that the club is keener to hear.
Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, has said that he was ready to sign for another, unnamed, club last summer until his children convinced him to sign for Mourinho and United.
Jones has now played 17 times for the club this season and, despite missing the EFL Cup final victory with a knock on a bruised foot, his impressive form has seen him linked with a return to the England side.
In accordance with his current short-term contract, Ibrahimovic has the option to stay at Old Trafford for one more season.
"I never bank for a player to sign a contract, I never bank for a player to play for me", Mourinho said.
The Swede told reporters, "No, it's not about that [Champions League]".
After playing in Serie A, La Liga, Eredivisie and Ligue 1, many thought his best days are behind him and he is coming to Premier League for the hefty purse.
"They are a very hard team, they had a very good Champions League campaign". It has nothing to do with that. I am enjoying it in England. "It's not easy to win titles so many times, it's not easy to cope with that pressure that I put myself under with my career", Mourinho said.
"I will stop on top", the Manchester United forward added.
But we all believe he will stay one more season. Mourinho's team is placed in the sixth position in the English Premier League table since their victory over Swansea previous year in November.
