Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirms once again that he has several offers from Premier League clubs and believes big things to happen this summer. Last month he even declared to be ‘in shape’ for the Premier League challenge.

The 34-year-old lethal striker is expected to part away with Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season when his contract runs out and over the past few months bunch of reports have linked him with a move to Premier League, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea mentioned as his potential suitors.

However on Friday, there were several reports claiming the 34-year-old Swedish striker is one of United’s priority targets as the Red Devils are ready to offer a two-year contract worth £24m.

The highly rated striker has long been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford particularly if Jose Mourinho is appointed as the next manager because the pair has always been very close.

Interestingly Ibrahimovic, who has kissed silverwares in four different European leagues, has never played in England but has frequently hinted his next stop could be the Premier League.

When Ibra was asked about a possible move to England,  he said: “Yes, there is an interest, I can confirm that. We have to see where it leads. 

“When the moment comes, when all the cards are on the table, that’s when I have to go through what I want, and then we’ll see who wants it more. 

“It’s like a marriage. Two parties have to want it, not one or the other. Each side needs to want it as much as the other.”

Ibrahimovic, who will spearhead Sweden at this summer’s European Championship in France, further said: “A lot of big things will happen this summer. Have a little patience and you will have things to write about. The future looks very good.”

The Swedish striker has netted 35 goals in 40 games for PSG so far this season, helping the French champions win the Ligue 1 title for the fourth successive year and cement their place in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals against Manchester City.

Despite his exceptional scoring form, Ibrahimovic also made it clear that there were no such ongoing talks with PSG about a contract extension.

When questioned about his time with PSG, he added: “I’ve had four fantastic years with them. 

“The relationship I have with them is only positive. They have done everything they could for me and my family.”
