Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Could make a return to the San Siro.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed interest from Premier League but warned he must want to join a club as much as they want him to.

Ibrahimovic, who has stated in the past that he would like to play in England, has been linked with Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham, though Slaven Bilic said earlier this month the Hammers are “not yet a club who those kind of players would consider”.

Ibrahimovic himself has now warned he will only join a club if both parties are as keen on the move as each other.

When asked about a possible move to England, Ibrahimovic said: “Yes, there is an interest, I can confirm that. We have to see where it leads.

“When the moment comes, when all the cards are on the table, that’s when I have to go through what I want, and then we’ll see who wants it more.

“It’s like a marriage. Two parties have to want it, not one or the other. Each side needs to want it as much as the other.”

Ibrahimovic, who will captain Sweden at this summer’s European Championship in France, added: “A lot of big things will happen this summer. Have a little patience and you will have things to write about. The future looks very good.”

Ibrahimovic has scored 35 goals in 40 games for Paris Saint-Germain so far this season, helping them to a fourth successive Ligue 1 title, but the 34-year-old has joked he will only stay with the French giants if they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of him.

Asked about his time with PSG, he added: “I’ve had four fantastic years with them.

“The relationship I have with them is only positive. They have done everything they could for me and my family.”
