Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent has revealed that the striker’s original intention was to end his career at Napoli.

Mino Raiola would not disclose whether Napoli made Ibrahimovic an offer this summer, with the striker eventually choosing Manchester United.

Yet earlier in his career, Ibrahimovic told his agent that he would end his playing career in Naples, because of the mentality of the fans in that area of Italy.

“Was Ibra approached by Napoli this summer? The presidents who talk to me, they know what is said remains between us,” Raiola said.

“We chose United recently, it was our goal, Ibra was also the club’s aim, and we’re now where we needed to be,

“All I can say is at Ciro Ferrara’s farewell game at the San Paolo, Zlatan called me and told me: “Mino, I want to end my career in Naples.

“That’s because the mentality of the Neapolitans is the one closest to his, and if the league remained as it was back then, he might have done just that.”
