Ibrahimovic coy on PSG future

SoccerNews in Ligue 1 22 May 2013


Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to rule out a departure from the club when the transfer window reopens.

The Sweden international has starred for the Parc des Prince outfit since a 20 million euro move from Milan, scoring 34 goals in 45 appearances in his first season to help Carlo Ancelotti’s side to the Ligue 1 title.

However, it has been widely reported that Ibrahimovic is now being targeted by former club Juventus, and the 31-year-old says nothing is certain.

“We’ll see, there is a lot going on,” he told Sweden’s TV4. “At other times when I have said I should stay, I changed clubs, so I dare not say anything.

“I have two years left and anything can happen. I have learned this in football.”

The Parisien outfit’s director of football Leonardo revealed last week that PSG manager Ancelotti is Real Madrid’s number one target to replace the departing Jose Mourinho.

But Ibrahimovic is keen for the Italian to stay put and believes replacing him would be a big ask.

“I have a great relationship with him and I do not want him to leave. For me he is the right man for this project and he has done fantastically well considering how difficult it was,” he added.

“He has not said much to us, it’s private and between him and the club.

“The team is now well regarded internationally and has many great personalities on the team. You have to bring in someone who can handle it. I do not think many can do it.”
