With Paris Saint-Germain having just two matches remaining of their league campaign, the future of their star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still unresolved.

The Swede’s contract expires in the summer and it is widely believed that the 34-year-old is set to leave the French champions at the end of the season.

While it’s unclear where his next destination will be, his agent last week hinted which city Ibrahimovic could be heading for.

“Ibrahimovic could return to Italy, to Milan,” Mino Raiola told Italian GQ Magazine, per The Mirror.

That comment from his agent doesn't suggest whether it is AC Milan or Inter Milan that Ibrahimovic ‘could’ return to with the forward playing for both earlier in his career.

However, Ibrahimovic himself has responded to the comments with a revelation of his own.

When asked about his future, he told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I want to keep on playing. Wherever it is we'll just have to see. I'll decide soon.

"I have a good relationship with Milan and I care about them. They are the biggest club I played for.

"It wasn't me who wanted to leave when I left Milan, it was other people, but it went the way it went. Now we'll see how the future is. You never know if the future will be the same as the past, but let's see. All will be revealed soon.”

So, now we know. His agent was referring to AC Milan rather than Inter Milan.

Ibrahimovic played for Milan for two seasons before joining PSG and scored an impressive 56 goals in 85 appearances in all competitions for them. In his debut campaign, he helped the Rossoneri win Serie A under Massimiliano Allegri but was soon snapped up by the Parc des Princes outfit.

It’s no surprise that there are plenty of clubs interested in the enigmatic superstar given the incredible campaign he’s had. Despite edging towards the end of his career, Ibrahimovic has scored a sensational 45 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions - including 35 in 29 in the league.

And Ibrahimovic himself has admitted that this season has been the best so far in his illustrious 20-year career.

"This year has been the best year of my career. I still feel I'm getting better and I just need to continue,” he said.

"I've worked even harder this season -- more than normal, and my normal work is already a lot. When you work so hard, you always get your reward."

While Ibrahimovic’s and his agents’ comments don’t necessarily mean he is certain to sign for Milan, the Italian club certainly appear to be heading a large group of clubs vying for his signature.
