Arsenal-linked star Zlatan Ibrahimovic comments on future at Paris Saint Germain

The Swede spoke on his club situation at a press conference on Sunday.

Arsenal have been given a boost in their pursuit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the 32-year-old conceded there is no guarantee he will be a PSG player come next season.

"I still have one year left on my contract," the striker said, quoted by ESPN from Channel Five. "I belong to PSG. I do not have another plan, but things can change from one day to another.

"I cannot say much now, but I belong to PSG and we will continue like that. But the older I get, the more I have to think differently about choosing a club."

Recently linked with a return to the San Siro with Milan, Zlatan went on to explain that the lure of Champions League football isn’t the only driver in his decision-making process.

"This concerns not only the footballing aspect, but also the quality of life for my family," he explained.

"Many people think that the number one criterion is the Champions League. But this is not true. I want to be in a club that I like, where I have a good time, and have fun playing football."

He went on to address the issue of any lingering regrets should he fail to clinch a Champions League winner’s medal:

"If I do not win the Champions League, believe me, my career has been magical anyway. Check my track record; it speaks for itself."

Arsenal’s pursuit of an upgrade on the inconsistent Olivier Giroud could lead them to the enigmatic Swede, who once again proved his fondness for the spectacular with a great solo effort on Sunday against Montenegro in his country’s 3-1 victory.

At 32 years-old, his signing would constitute something of a risk however. His history of attitude problems coupled with his high wage demands could deter any move from the Gunners but there is no doubting his ability and the effect a superstar signing could have on an Arsenal title challenge.
