Perennial tease Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists that a summer retirement is an option if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain.
Ibrahimovic is currently in the final months of his contract at the Parc des Princes and has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.
The veteran striker has won 11 league titles in four different countries in his career, and has guided PSG to the Ligue 1 title for the fourth season running.
The 34-year-old has scored 102 goals in 116 appearances for PSG, and moves to the MLS and China have been speculated.
Ibrahimovic previously stated that his next move would be a “surprise”, and the Sweden all-time top-goalscorer has now claimed that is is considering retirement.
“Maybe I’ll just retire,” he told TV4, a Swedish television network. “Nobody’s thought of that possibility.
“I would prefer to go out at the top. Anything could happen next summer.
“When all the cards are on the table, I’ll see which direction I want to take.”
Manchester United, West Ham and Arsenal have all been heavily linked with a move for Ibrahimovic, and the striker’s agent has suggested that the former Barcelona striker is “made for the Premier League”.
