Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent has revealed every top Premier League club is interested in securing his client's services - all expect for Manchester City.

Mino Raiola, agent to the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, told the media he has received enquiries from every top manager in England's top-flight regarding the Swedish striker, but is yet to hear anything from incoming City boss, Pep Guardiola.

Ibrahimovic's Paris Saint-Germain contract expires this summer, with speculation rife surrounding where the talismanic striker will ply his trade next campaign.

A lack of interest shown from Guardiola won't phase Ibrahimovic, though, given the 34-year-old endured a strained spell under the Spaniard at Barcelona.

Asked who is interested in the Sweden international, Raiola said, as per Sky Sports: "Outside of Manchester City, who will be managed by Pep Guardiola, all the big clubs have knocked on the door."

The Italian-born agent continued to insist Ibrahimovic still has several years left of his playing career.

"With the physique and mindset he has I told him he can play another five years," he continued.

"He has incredible energy that only improves with time. When he has time he even goes out hunting. He isn't human in a sense that people can't even imagine what he is capable of."

A move to Manchester United appears most likely given the PSG striker and Jose Mourinho - who is rumoured to take over this summer - are on close terms. Ibrahimovic has previously stated his desire to play under the Portuguese.

However, one stumbling block regarding any move to the Premier League could be the veteran's wages. According to reports, Ibrahimovic is keen on a move to England but wants a ludicrous £600,000-per-week pay packet amidst an unhappiness regarding tax demands.
