Zlatan dismisses Milan rumors, plans stay at PSG after “magical year”


If Zlatan Ibrahimovic sticks around Paris Saint-Germain for next season, it will be the longest stint he’s spent with a single club during his 17-year career.

Ibrahimovic, 33, has scored 106 goals in 126 matches for PSG since arriving from AC Milan in 2012, but his cozy relationship with the Serie A side has kept a return in the rumor mill.

Zlatan rubbished those ideas as a press conference before his Sweden side faces Montenegro in Sunday’s Euro 2016 qualifier.

From Sky Sports:

“It’s the media blowing it up and talking a lot, but there’s nothing behind it. I’m a PSG player and I have one year left.

“You never know what will happen in football, but at the moment it doesn’t look like that. I’m happy at PSG, we had a magical year, we won everything we could win and made the quarter-finals of the Champions League.”

Why would he leave? He brandishes chef-firing power and runs rampant through Ligue 1. Frankly, we’re glad Zlatan is sticking around PSG... at least until he’s ready to join the Montreal Impact, L.A. Galaxy or whatever trendy North American city fits his bill.
