There have been reports that the 33-year-old is unhappy in Paris, and is angling for a move away from the French capital over the next few months. However, he has at least refuted these claims while not entirely ruling out a move.

With 99 goals in 118 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions it would be surprising if they let him go so easily, but the Sweden international does have a history of moving on from clubs very quickly. Before moving to PSG he spent one year on loan at AC Milan and one permanently signed, one year at Barcelona before being loaned to the Rossoneri, and so on. The longest he has ever been with a side, without counting his academy training at Malmo, is just over three years with Ajax.

The striker said when asked about a return to Milan: “My return to Milan? It is the media that they’re talking about. But there’s nothing behind. I am a player of PSG and I still have a year of contract.

“Of course, anything can happen. But right now, for as things stand, I exclude my back. I’m good at PSG, we had a fantastic season. The project goes ahead, we are growing every day and I’m not going to go on. I repeat, in football anything can happen, but I’m good in Paris.”

If Jose Mourinho does sign the forward it will likely be as at best a rotation option with Diego Costa. Whether a player used to being the main man like Ibrahimovic would like this is debatable.
