Speculation surrounding the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has increased after a Swedish journalist claimed he would like a move to London.
The enigmatic Paris St-Germain superstar seems certain to leave the French club this summer, previously claiming that he would stay if they ‘replaced the Eiffel Tower with a statue of myself’.’
Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move to Manchester United, while West Ham United are also said to be keen. The player has said that he has received offers from the Premier League.
However, Olof Lundh, speaking to Sky Sports News, reckons the talismanic star would prefer to live in London than the North-West.
Lundh said: “It is pretty likely. In the beginning he preferred to go to the US with Miami but since David Beckham has had some problems getting the stadium ready and it’s not ready until 2018.
“I think he is looking to play in Europe at the top level and, of course, the Premier League is interesting for him.
“I think he would like to live in London. Whether that would be Chelsea, Arsenal or maybe even West Ham, we will see.
“I think when you talk to his colleagues in the national team in Sweden who play in the Premier League they all place him in Manchester United, of course with (Jose) Mourinho possibly coming in, but I’m not sure Zlatan Ibrahimovic would like to live in Manchester.
“It also depends on whether Manchester United reach the Champions League for the next season. I also think he made a statement yesterday to get it out on the market that he is free, he is willing and is looking to all the offers. So it will be a couple of interesting months now when he decides.”
