Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Admits his agent spoke to clubs in the summer

The Swedish striker only moved to the Parc des Princes from AC Milan in the summer of 2012 but his magnificent form fuelled speculation that a number of clubs were interested in luring him away during the transfer window.

The likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus were all linked with Ibrahimovic, but a move never materialised and he this week signed an extension to his PSG deal to keep him in the French capital until 2016.

The 31-year-old insists he is thrilled to be staying at PSG, but admits there was contact about a possible switch in the summer.

"I can confirm that this summer my agent spoke with several clubs," he said to RMC Sport.

"I spoke with PSG president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi] and, after our conversation, I decided to stay here and we reached a [contract] agreement.

"I am happy here and I hope that together PSG and I can do something historic."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
