Manchester United target Zlatan Ibrahimovic has stated that he has made a decision with regards to his playing future.

Ibrahimovic, whose contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer, has already announced that he will leave the French champions after four years in the capital.

United have been heavily linked to the 34-year-old, with many reporting that incoming manager Jose Mourinho will make the Swede his first signing at Old Trafford.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Ibrahimovic offered little clues as to where his future may lie beyond the European Championship this summer.

“I have not read the papers, so I don’t know what clubs you are linking me to,” Ibrahimovic said. “If you ask me, nothing is happening. Only the Euros.

“I have concrete offers from England, Italy, from all countries. There are many alternatives.

“It’s not important for me to have it done for me before the Euros. I enjoy reading what you write. It’s fun.”

Pressed on his future, Ibrahimovic added: “I have made my decision. It has been made. It was done a long time ago.

“The future is already written.”

The forward was asked directly about links with United, to which he replied: “Let’s see what happens.

“I don’t give guarantees. I can tell you there is concrete offers from the Premier League.”

On expected future United manager Mourinho, who worked with Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan, he said: “Mourinho is the man to bring United back to the top. I had a fantastic time with him. I don’t know if we’ll work again.

“I have missed working with Mourinho every day since I left Inter.

“I have spoken with him every day since I left Inter. Although we have not spoken in the last few weeks.”
