Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make a shock move to Bayern Munich to link up with former manager Pep Guardiola this summer, paving the way for Wayne Rooney to complete a sensational switch to Paris Saint-Germian, according to the Daily Mirror.

Ibrahimovic has been in brilliant form this season for PSG, who he joined from AC Milan in the summer, scoring 24 goals in 25 Ligue 1 appearances and helping his side reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

However the Mirror report that the Swede is unhappy in Paris and is looking at a summer exit, with an unlikely move to link up with Guardiola at Bayern on the cards. The German club said to be preparing a £20 million bid, with Juventus also said to be interested.

Guardiola, who will take over from Jupp Heynckes at Bayern in the summer, endured a strained relationship with Ibrahimovich having signed him while in charge of Barcelona in 2009.

The 31-year-old cost £40 million, with striker Samuel Eto'o heading to Inter Milan as part of the deal, but only lasted a single season with the Catalan club before joining AC Milan in a cut-price deal.

Since leaving the club Ibrahimovic has hit out at Guardiola and his former players, including Lionel Messi.

The ex-Ajax forward claimed he had been 'frozen out' by Guardiola, who he described as a 'bully'. Ibrahimovic also claimed he was sacrificed because Messi wanted to play in his position.

Should Ibrahimovic be on the move once more in the summer, it could open up the possibility of PSG making a move for Wayne Rooney.

The Manchester United striker's future at Old Trafford has been called into question in recent weeks after he was dropped for the Red Devils Champions League showdown against Real Madrid last week.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has since moved to rubbish claims Rooney will be allowed to leave.
