Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his summer exit from Paris St Germain in typically understated fashion on Friday, posting on Twitter: "I came like a king, left like a legend."

The 34-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and confirmed he will leave the capital club after Saturday's final game of the Ligue 1 campaign, at home to Nantes.

He tweeted on Friday morning: "My last game tomorrow at Parc des Princes. I came like a king, left like a legend."

Ibrahimovic had been widely expected to seek pastures new, and has been linked with a number of English teams including Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc had retained hope that his talisman would stay put, but Ibrahimovic decided the time was right to move on.

He will walk away with four Ligue 1 winners' medals, three Coupe de la Ligue titles and one - possibly two - Coupe de France crowns. PSG face Marseille in the 2016 final at the Stade de France next Saturday.

Ibrahimovic has previously hinted at a desire to play in England, saying he has "a lot of options". A return to AC Milan or a move Stateside to join the Los Angeles Galaxy have also been mooted.

The Sweden captain has netted 46 goals in all competitions for PSG this term, and is the club's all-time top scorer with 152 goals.

Ibrahimovic started his career in his homeland with Malmo and went on to also win league titles in Holland, Italy and Spain.
