England, Germany, US? Where does Zlatan see himself ending his career?

Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a phenomenal goalscorer wherever he has played.

What Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants, Zlatan Ibrahimovic normally gets, and the giant Swede has been discussing a possible next move with journalists with surprising results.

When asked if he would consider moving to the MLS, Ibrahimovic was very much open to the possibility, on account of former teammate Thierry Henry's success there.

"I don't know," he said when queried about a move. "I mean, it's a question a lot of journalists have been asking. I have a contract [at PSG] for another two years, so let's see how I am physically in two years and if the opportunity is still there."

"I will really think about it because I find it very interesting to come over to America because my friend Thierry Henry is playing there and he's doing fantastic there, and he talks a lot of positive about the Major League Soccer, so it's an interesting thing if the opportunity is still there in two to three years."

Just one goal behind the Swedish national team's goalscoring record, there are arguably few Swedes as proven as the former Barcelona and Inter Milan forward since the country's 1950's heyday.

Having amassed a giant 11 league titles across 6 clubs in 4 different countries (ironically, the only country he has played in and not won the league is his homeland), it is very likely Ibrahimovic will be highly sought after if he decides to leave PSG in 2016, when his contract runs out, even though he will be 34-years-old.

It will be a blow to the Parisian outfit, who had within the last few weeks said they hoped to tie their star player down for the rest of his career and beyond.

With England and Germany the only major European leagues he hasn't featured in, don't be surprised if he tries his hand in one of those two countries if he fails to end up in the MLS. 

Having almost moved to Arsenal early on in his career, he has long been criticised in England as being unable to perform against Premier League sides, before silencing the British press emphatically by scoring all 4 goals as Sweden beat England 4-2 in 2012 in the first game at the new Friends Arena in Stockholm.

It wouldn't be unlike Ibrahimovic to go to England and prove everyone that little bit more wrong.
