City interested in Ibrahimovic

Manchester City are considering a move for Paris Saint Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Mail Online understands.

Last season’s Premier League runners up are looking to fill the void left by Carlos Tevez, who joined Juventus last month, and will battle Real Madrid for the 31 year olds services.

Ibrahimovic, who is understood to be weighing up his options amid Edinson Cavani’s imminent arrive in the French capital, scored thirty goals in Ligue 1 last season on his way to securing the league Championship.

He has also won league titles with Barcelona, AC Milan., two with Ajax, three with Inter Milan, and two with Juventus, though his medals from his time in Turin were revoked due to the Italian match fixing scandal of 2006.

The Sweden captain has been capped 90 times, scoring 41 goals, including four in a friendly against England last November.

In his first press conference a City manager earlier this week, Manuel Pellegrini expressed his desire to add some more depth ahead of the new campaign.

He said: ‘We have two strikers at the moment and we need another one. We need a stronger squad with two players in each position’.
