Paris Saint-Germain’s Swedish forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has many options before him

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic is sending ‘conflicting’ signals on where he will be playing his club football next season.

While, the Swede at one breath is looking like he would return to Italy to pitch tent with former club, AC Milan, Ibrahimovic in another breath is talking up staying in France with PSG or going to the EPL if the right team come with the right price.

Ibrahimovic’s contract expires at the end of the season and his agent, Mino Raiola, said last week that the 34-year-old is open to a return to the Rossoneri, where he spent two years before joining PSG.

Ibrahimovic has now told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I want to keep on playing. Wherever it is we’ll just have to see. I’ll decide soon.

“I have a good relationship with Milan and I care about them. They are the biggest club I played for.

“It wasn’t me who wanted to leave when I left Milan, it was other people, but it went the way it went. Now we’ll see how the future is. You never know if the future will be the same as the past, but let’s see. All will be revealed soon.”

The Sweden international added: “This year has been the best year of my career. I still feel I’m getting better and I just need to continue.

“I’ve worked even harder this season — more than normal, and my normal work is already a lot. When you work so hard, you always get your reward.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has impressed during his four-year spell with Paris Saint-Germain.

Ibrahimovic has scored 35 goals in Ligue 1 this season, more than in any of his previous three seasons at PSG, and is not ruling out the prospect of a new deal at the Parc des Princes.

Asked why he was leaving by France’s RMC, he replied: “I’m not sure I am leaving. The future will be told — soon. Soon it will be said so let’s see what happens.
