Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dropped a big hint that he could return to former club AC Milan this summer, promising that “all will be revealed soon” after months of speculation regarding his future.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Paris Saint-Germain striker was happy to discuss the prospect of a move after four years and 110 goals in French football.
"I want to keep on playing. Wherever it is we'll just have to see. I'll decide soon,” he said.

"This year has been the best year of my career. I still feel I'm getting better and I just need to continue.”
When pressed on a possible destination, Ibrahimovic spoke of his deep affection for former club AC Milan, sparking rumours of a return to Italy.
"I have a good relationship with Milan and I care about them," the Swede added. "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."
Ibrahimovic was awarded Ligue 1 Player of the Year on Sunday evening for the third-successive season after scoring 35 goals in another hugely impressive campaign for PSG.
Laurent Banc’s side romped to a fourth-straight league title but failed to reach the latter stages of the Champions League, losing 1-0 to Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
Milan would be a surprise choice given the turmoil that has engulfed the club over the course of the season. Cristian Brocchi is only six games into his reign as head coach yet club president Silvio Berlusconi is already looking at possible replacements.
The Italian outfit sit seventh in Serie A and have not won the title since the 2010/11 season; Ibrahimovic would surely struggle to build on his haul of 13 league titles in 15 years at the San Siro.
