Speaking to L’Equipe [as per the Daily Mail], the Swedish striker has confirmed that while he is currently concentrating on his career in the French capital, he hasn’t ruled out moving to Qatar when his current contract comes to an end.
“A move to Qatar? I have a good relationship with [PSG president)] Nasser Al-Khelaifi and with the people of Qatar, but I cannot say anything at this stage,” the striker began.
“Let’s just say that a move to Qatar is an option. I am enjoying my football at the moment and I’m feeling well both mentally and physically. I am enjoying myself each game. We will see what happens.
“My current situation is new to me. I have an expiring contract and that is a new experience. I am free to do what I want,” the former Barcelona man continued.
“I am focused on PSG for now. I still have six months to go on my current contract and I want to give my best for the team. I do not have a next destination in mind.”
PSG are currently in the Middle East during the French league’s winter break, but it remains to be seen how much longer Zlatan will be with the capital club.
While it looks almost certain that he will at least depart when his contract ends next summer, he could also leave in January, with no shortage of suitors.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are all understood to be monitoring the powerful forward [Express], while AC Milan have been tipped to be keen on bringing Zlatan back to Lombardy [The Sun], and the possibility of a transfer to Major League Soccer has also been mooted [The Sun].
