Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirms PSG exit but future still remains unclear

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed on social media that he is leaving the French capital this summer.

The 34-year-old’s contract with the Ligue 1 champions expires at the end of the season, and there has been little in the way of suggestions that he would sign an extension.

In turn, it has sparked significant speculation over his future, with the Premier League, a return to AC Milan, a move to China, Qatar and MLS all being touted as possibilities in recent months.

While Ibrahimovic has yet to confirm his next move, he has now revealed that PSG are no longer in the running after taking to Twitter to announce his decision.

“My last game tomorrow at Parc des Princes. I came like a king, left like a legend.”

PSG host Nantes at the Parc des Princes on Saturday, before taking on Marseille in the French Cup final on May 21, which will be Ibrahimovic’s last competitive game for the club.

The Swede’s focus will in turn be on finishing the season with two wins, while it will then quickly switch to Euro 2016 as he captains his side in France this summer.

Nevertheless, it is widely expected that he will announce a decision on his future before the tournament, with a return to Italy or a move to the USA seemingly the top two possibilities as LA Galaxy have emerged as an option, as reported by The LA Times.

Aside from the footballing aspect of the decision, Ibrahimovic is also said to be prioritising his family, which in turn has ruled out reported moves to the likes of China and Qatar despite the significantly better financial packages being offered.

Regardless of what he decides to do, he can look back on his time in the French capital with fond memories, having added four league titles and seven cup trophies to his collection of silverware.
