Zlatan Ibrahimovic has joked he will reverse his decision to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer if they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of him.
The 34-year-old was quizzed on his future after scoring four goals as Laurent Blanc’s side stormed to a 9-0 rout at Troyes to wrap up a fourth straight Ligue 1 title with eight games to spare.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said after the match he remained hopeful of keeping the Sweden striker, whose deal runs out at the end of the campaign.
But Ibrahimovic, who has been linked with a move to a number of clubs including Manchester United, looks to have his mind set on leaving the Parc des Princes – unless there are some serious structural changes on the Champ de Mars.
“I always had a good relationship with the fans,” he told beIN Sport. “With the club, they always took care of me. I have always had good relationship with everyone. This is not in question.
“But, for now, I will not be at PSG next season. I have one-and-a-half months left on my contract here. I will enjoy while I’m still here. What will happen next year, I do not know, but for now, I will not be here.”
He joked: “I do not think they can change the Eiffel Tower by my statue, so… Even the leaders of the club cannot, I think. But if they can, I’ll stay here, I promise.”
