Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Linked with Premier League

Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he hasn’t ruled out retirement at the end of the season when he leaves French champions PSG. 

Ibrahimovic is currently in the final months of his contract at the Parc des Princes and has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.

The veteran striker has won 11 league titles in four different countries in his career, and has guided PSG to the Ligue 1 title for the fourth season running.

The 34-year-old has scored 102 goals in 116 appearances for PSG, and moves to the MLS and China have been speculated.

Ibrahimovic previously stated that his next move would be a “surprise”, and the Sweden all-time top-goalscorer has now claimed that is is considering retirement.

“Maybe I’ll just retire,” he told TV4, a Swedish television network. “Nobody’s thought of that possibility.

“I would prefer to go out at the top. Anything could happen next summer.

“When all the cards are on the table, I’ll see which direction I want to take.”

Manchester United and Arsenal have both been heavily linked with a move for Ibrahimovic, and the striker’s agent has suggested that the former Barcelona striker is “made for the Premier League”.

West Ham have recently emerged as shock contenders for Ibrahimovic’s signature this summer, and with his recent comments it is anyone’s guess as to where the controversial star will end up this summer.
