French publication L'Equipe are reporting Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could leave the Ligue 1 champions next summer.

The towering Swedish forward is said to be interested in joining ex-PSG teammate David Beckham's MLS franchise in Miami once his current contract expires at the end of the season.

Ibrahimovic was linked to a move to America during the summer as well as a return to former clubs AC Milan and Malmo, where the striker began his footballing career.

The 34-year-old Swede would be following a number of talented players who have left Europe to play their football in North America. Sebastian Giovinco, Andrea Pirlo, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have all joined MLS clubs this year.

Mino Raiola, Ibrahimovic's agent, told L'Equipe: "Anything is possible. Zlatan can sign anywhere because he will be out of contract, but we have yet to decide. We have offers from several clubs and we are free to decide."

Beckham played with Ibrahimovic while at PSG up to his retirement from the sport in 2013 and has been keen to acquire the Swedish international for his new Miami franchise.

Meanwhile, the popular maverick has played in five countries across Europe for seven clubs, scoring more than 300 goals and winning the league with all but one of his employers. He currently captains the Swedish national team - for whom he is also the leading goalscorer of all-time - finding the net 59 times from 109 caps.

Whether such rumours are true or not, PSG certainly have the financial power to bring in a top replacement for Ibrahimovic should he depart the club next year.
