Paris Saint-Germain’s acquisition of Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani brought on speculation that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be leaving the club.
However, the Sweden international insists that he will remain at PSG and see out his contract.
“I am at Paris and there’s no reason for me to change club,” Ibrahimovic told The Local. “I belong to PSG and I will respect my contract.”
Ibrahimovic was PSG’s marquee signing from last year’s summer transfer window, but now might be forced to play second fiddle to Cavani.
Nevertheless, Ibra seems ready to embrace the presence of a second world-class striker in Paris.
“We will have to learn and get to know each other,” he said in the same interview. “He will have to get to know the team, the city, and the fans. He’s a very good acquisition and I welcome him.”
Ibrahimovic also mentioned that he hasn’t yet met with club president Nasser al Khelaifi, but he intends to.
“I have not yet met with the president, but we need to meet and resolve some details, both big and small,” he added.
The big Swede also praised his relationship with the club president.
“With the president we talk about everything and often,” Ibrahimovic continued. “We often talk about real estate. What we say, stays between us. What is happening now, happens every summer with people trying to link me with every club.”
It’s been an eventful summer so far for PSG, which already lost manager Carlo Ancelotti and Sporting Director Leonardo.
Only time will tell if the club’s most prolific player sticks around.
