Zlatan Ibrahimovic has ruled out a return to Malmo ahead of next season, but is still no closer to revealing which team he will join this summer.
The 34-year-old’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire at the end of this month, and he has already confirmed that he will not be staying in the French capital next year.
In turn, that has given rise to significant speculation over his future, with Manchester United, AC Milan and even Malmo regarded as options.
However, he has now ruled out a return to his hometown club in the immediate future, but revealed that he is enjoying all the transfer talk surrounding him.
“I’m too good for the Swedish league,” he told reporters at a press conference. “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.”
As noted by the Manchester Evening News, the expectation remains that the Swedish international will secure a reunion with Jose Mourinho and move to Old Trafford this summer.
However, there is also the option of a return to Milan, a club and city that he holds close to his heart after enjoying such a successful spell at the San Siro previously.
With lucrative offers from China and MLS unlikely to be tempting enough at this stage of his career given that he continues to prove that he can produce at a high level, his realistic options are arguably coming down to two clubs.
Nevertheless, Ibrahimovic is evidently loving the media attention concerning him, and he’ll reveal his decision when it suits him best and won’t give in to pressure from outside sources.
