Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he is unsure over his future at AC Milan, with no talks having yet been held over extending his contract.

The 38-year-old rejoined the Serie A club in December after leaving LA Galaxy, on a deal until the end of the summer season that also contains an option to extend until 2021.

He has made 11 appearances since, scoring five goals including two in his last two games, and insists he can only carry on to play if he is able to “make a difference”.

“I continue to play only if I can bring results. I’m not a mascot,” that he told Sky in Italy.

“Next year? Let’s see, I still have three weeks of [my] contract. Nobody started talking about the future, on my part or from Milan. Here there is nothing known about the future now. Let’s play and finish as best we could, then let us see.

“There is no one as strong as Ibra. It is dependent upon the club, not just me.”

Milan are expected to bring in RB Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick, that will almost certainly have a huge say in which players stay and who leaves Milan at the conclusion of the summer season, should that happen.

But Ibrahimovic said: “I have no idea Rangnick and I have no idea if he’s coming. They didn’t say anything to us, I don’t know whether or not it’s official.”
