As the season draws to a close, it’s becomingly increasingly interesting as to where Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be playing next season.
The Swede’s contract expires in the summer and it’s widely believed that he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain. But to go where?
There is, unsurprisingly, plenty of clubs interested in signing the enigmatic striker. Despite being 34, Ibrahimovic has had one of the most impressive seasons in his illustrious career by scoring 44 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions.

His remarkable 34 goals in 28 Ligue 1 games saw PSG romp to their fourth consecutive league tittle. While they may have won the league four years in a row, they have also crashed out of the Champions League quarter-finals in each of the previous four campaigns - a trophy that Ibrahimovic is missing from his individual cabinet.
However, he “could” be set to join a club that won’t be playing Champions League football next season, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
“Ibrahimovic could return to Italy, to Milan,” he told Italian GQ Magazine, per The Mirror.
Milan or Inter?
Of course, by Raiola saying “Milan” it’s unclear whether he means AC Milan or Inter Milan.
Before joining PSG, Ibrahimovic spent two seasons at Milan, scoring 56 goals in 85 appearances and helping them to win Serie A in 2011.
But that’s not the only side he’s represented in the city. He played for Inter for three seasons under Jose Mourinho where they won three consecutive league titles.
However, both Inter and Milan have no chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League with them sitting fourth and seventh in the league table respectively - with only the top three teams qualifying for the competition.
Move to England?
Previous to Raiola’s comments, Ibrahimovic had been heavily linked with a move to the England.
Having won league titles in Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, a chance to win the Premier League could attract the superstar.
Last month, Ibrahimovic, himself, spoke about the lure of the Premier League by telling reporters: "Yes, there is interest from the Premier League, I can confirm that.
"The Premier League is the league in the world all people and fans speak about,” he added.
Sky Sports also reported that Ibrahimovic would be keen to sign for Manchester United in the summer - only if current manager Louis van Gaal leaves.
If the Dutchman does leave his post, it’s highly likely that he will be replaced by Mourinho and Ibrahimovic could be tempted with a sensational reunion with the Portuguese boss.
The destination of Ibrahimovic is certainly one to keep your eye on in the next couple of weeks.
