Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in demand recently with a number of clubs rumoured to be interested in taking him away from Paris, though there has been only one club that he’s batted his eyelashes at, Sky Sports reports.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Juventus have all been sniffing around the iconic Swede, but it is speculation linking him to the latter that the man himself has sought to respond to.

“If Juventus really want me, it would be an honour for me to play for them,” he said, “They are a fantastic club with a great team and a great project.”

The 31-year-old spent two years at the Turin club between 2004-06, helping them to win two Serie A titles. These, however, were revoked in the wake of the Calciopoli scandal that saw Juve demoted to Serie B for a season.

Ibrahimovic joined PSG last summer for a fee of £20 million, and though he is flattered by the link he remains focussed on his quest to win the Ligue 1 championship: “It’s an honour that they are interested in me, but at this time I am only thinking about PSG and winning the title with them.”

However, Juve chief, Giuseppe Marotta, has moved to dispel any inks to their former striker, claiming that they wouldn’t be able to afford his wages.

“He would have to cut his wages, but I don’t think it would be possible.”
