Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to discuss the possibility of a move to the Premier League, despite reports on Wednesday claiming he is ‘utterly convinced’ he is set to join Manchester United over the summer.
The Sun claims the Paris Saint-Germain striker, 34, is ‘so confident that he will be linking up with could-be boss Jose Mourinho at United, that he is already planning ahead for life in England’. Our Paper Talk on Tuesday suggested he could be the man that United would turn to in a bid to bring a stronger goal menace to their side next season.
But the Sweden striker, speaking to the media ahead of PSG’s Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, insisted nothing about his future had been decided.
Ibrahimovic’s contract expires at the end of the season, but he said: “My future is I have another two months with PSG, then I have the Euros to play with my national team.
“Whatever happens after that, like it is today, there is nothing after that. I’m not in discussion with anybody because for me it’s not the moment to talk about that.”
The striker did, however, teasingly hint he’s already got his next move lined up by adding: “I’m not worried about the future. The future looks good after the season I’m doing.”
PSG go into the second leg with a 2-1 advantage over Chelsea and Ibrahimovic believes it is only a matter of time until his club win Europe’s biggest prize: “The club I’m playing in now is a project that began three and a half years ago.
“With all the respect, what happened before that, I think the club was born the day that the Qataris took over. It’s a totally new club.
“With time, with what the Qataris are investing, there are no limits. Trust me, they will hunt this Champions League until they get it. And they will not stop. With me or without me.”
