Ibrahimovic has had a mixed first season at United – scoring six goals in 11 Premier League matches – but the Swede is set to stay for another year after Mourinho confirmed he would trigger the option to keep him at the club for a second season.

Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes was full of praise for Ibrahimovic but doesn’t think he should continue to be the Red Devils’ main striker moving forward.

“He’s an athlete and a fit lad. I think he’ll be good to have around the place,” Scholes said.

“He’ll be good for someone like Rashford to learn from. If at 36 years of age he’s going to be the main striker then I don’t see that.

“When this club has been successful, when I was playing, when Michael [Owen] was playing, we always had three or four brilliant centre forwards.

“If you’re talking about a 36-year-old, as special as he’s been over his career, as special as he is now, I don’t think he should be the main one.”

And Scholes is in no doubt as to who he would like to sign as their new world-class striker.

“Will they bring another centre forward in? Wayne’s obviously there to challenge. Is Martial a centre forward? There’s four already.

“I think Griezmann would be up there, I think he looks great.”
