Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to snub the big bucks of the Premier League in favour of a move back to the San Siro, according to reports in Spain.

‘Ibra’ had been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City in recent weeks according to certain British media sources but Spanish daily Sport claims he is not interested in a move to England.

The Swedish international joined Barca from Italian side Inter Milan and looks set to move back to Italy – but with Inter’s arch-rivals AC Milan.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is under pressure from fans and has pledged to improve his side’s striking opitoins.

Inter won the treble this year and Milan need goalscorers as Fillipo Inzaghi is nearing the end of his career and the arrival of Klass-Jan Huntelaar has been underwhelming.

A front line of Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato and Ronaldinho would freshen up their old frontline and give them more options to challenge Inter next term.

With the arrival of Valencia goal scorer David Villa, Sport says Ibrahimovic is no longer needed and would be available for around €50 million (£43 million), a fee both Chelsea and City would be willing to pay.

Ibrahimovic’s family, though, were happy in Milan and he would favour a move back to a more lucrative move to the Premier League.
