Swedish star had offers on the table.
Paris Saint Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that his agent had spoken with a number of clubs this summer before saying that he was happy to stay in the French capital to help build ‘something historic’, Sky Sports reports.
The iconic and enigmatic Swede only arrived at the Parc des Princes last summer from Italian giants AC Milan, but his tremendous form over the course of the campaign prompted some heavy speculation that his future lay away from the club, with several all too eager to help bring him away from the Ligue 1 big spenders.
The likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus were all linked with Ibrahimovic, but a move never materialised and this week he put pen to paper on an extension to his PSG deal to keep him in the French capital until 2016.
And the 31-year-old has admitted that he is delighted to be staying at the club, though he also confessed that there were talks to take him elsewhere during the transfer window.
“I can confirm that this summer my agent spoke with several clubs,” he said to RMC Sport.
“I spoke with PSG president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi] and, after our conversation, I decided to stay here and we reached a [contract] agreement.
“I am happy here and I hope that together PSG and I can do something historic.”
