Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he does not plan to return to former club Malmo this summer by claiming he is too good for Swedish football.
The 34-year-old will be out of contract after the European Championship on leaving Paris Saint-Germain and has scored a spectacular 50 goals for club and country this season.
He’s been heavily associated with a move to Manchester United to link-up with Jose Mourinho, but his agent recently suggested a move to Old Trafford could be unlikely.
Speaking about his future, Ibrahimovic insists he will only return to his home city to play with the national team.
“I’m too good for the Swedish league,” he said.
“I want you to still write a lot of stories.
“I get excited when I see them because I want to see who is making up the best story. And when I am tired of it, I will let you know where I will go.”
Ibrahimovic started his professional career with Malmo, before leaving the Allsvenskan side for Ajax in 2001. He has indicated he will make his decision on his future after the Euro 2016 tournament and will lead the line against Wales in Sweden’s final friendly before the Euros.
After ruling out a move back to his homeland, he has added further speculation about a move to Old Trafford and it’d be an incredible free transfer for the club as he’s more than capable of leading teams to titles.
United only managed to score 46 goals in the Premier League and could definitely do with an experienced striker up front to help take the pressure of Marcus Rashford‘s shoulders next season with Wayne Rooney dropping to a deeper midfield role.
