Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move away from the French giants following a huge bust-up with referee Lionel Jeffredo after defeat to Bordeaux earlier this month, in which he offended many in the country by calling France a “s*** country”.

The 33-year-old later apologised for the rant, but despite being keen to stay at the club until the end of his contract in 2016, PSG scouts are scouring the market for a big name replacement, the Mirror report, possibly spelling the end for the Swede.

Barcelona striker Neymar is understood to be high on the list of potential replacements, having bagged 26 goals in 37 goals so far this season, though he is thought not to have any plans of leaving the Nou Camp.

He said, “I’m very happy playing for Barcelona and I still have a long road to walk here.”

Ibrahimovic has been impressive for PSG this season, scoring 21 goals in just 26 games, though if the club could tempt Neymar to join then he will likely be a worthy adversary.
