Paris, Jan 2 (IANS) Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola on Saturday said he wants to see the Swedish star footballer in the English Premier League.
The 34-year-old striker will be out of contract next summer but he had earlier stated he does not want to quit playing for the French Ligue 1 champions. But Raiola believes the game in England will suit his style of play.
“I would like to see him in the Premier League. It’s a game that is made for him with his strength, his ability, his technique, the stadiums with fantastic atmosphere and how football is lived,” Raiola was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“It’s difficult now because for the first time in his life he wants to be a free agent so that he can look around and have a feeling day-by-day what he wants to do.”
Raiola also dismissed reports of Ibrahimovic leaving the Paris-based club in January.
“There are a lot of projects on our table but he has not decided yet. Can he go to England? In theory yes he can because he will be a free agent and for sure there are some clubs always interested in him. What we will do at the end, I really don’t know,” said the agent.
“No, he will definitely stay with Paris St-Germain until the end of the season. He wants to be with them, they want to be with him. We have a very strong relationship with the club. He will not leave in January.”
