Ibra happy at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has moved to end speculation about his future at the club by insisting he is happy at the Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has moved to end speculation about his future at the club by insisting he is happy at the Parc des Princes.

The Sweden international, who joined PSG from Italian Serie A giants AC Milan for around €20 million in the summer of 2012, has just one year remaining on his current deal with the French champions, and recent reports have linked with player with a summer move to Manchester United.

Earlier this week, Ibrahimovic insisted his future is in the hands of agent Mino Raiola, but the striker has now asserted he is happy in Paris.

“I have a contract for another year, so I’m a PSG player, and I’m happy at the club,” Ibrahimovic told ESPN FC.

“I did great things in these three years and what I did, nobody can take away from me and my team is a fantastic team and I play with great players. I live in the best city in Europe, so I’m enjoying it.

“So all about future talks and that, I mean, there will always be talks, and I’m happy for the interest, but I’m a PSG player.”

Ibrahimovic, 33, bagged 19 goals and six assists in 24 Ligue 1 appearances for PSG in 2014/15.

Reflecting PSG’s treble success last season, Ibrahimovic added: “I think last year, our team, we did OK. We did what we could do and Lyon was following us in the race for the title until the end, so I think they did more than good and we did OK and still we won and that’s because we have such a strong team.

“We could do much more than what we did and hopefully this year we will do less mistakes than what we did and normally we should win, without doubts.

“Last year we were in the quarter-finals, and same thing [this spring]. The ambition is to go further than that, but for me Champions League is all about the small details. It’s the moment. It’s not about going out there and thinking you can win it.

“I mean, you can do six months fantastic and then second six months, second half of the season you’re not as good as the first and then the first six months is not worth nothing, so, it’s the moment.”

In other news, out-of-favour Manchester United winger Angel di Maria is priced at 3/19 to join Paris Saint-Germain before the close of the current transfer window.
