Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has suggested he could move to Bayern Munich.
Sweden’s star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he can imagine moving to Germany’s Bundesliga, and Bavarian giants Bayern Munich, in an interview with a German football magazine.
“Sure, the Bundesliga would appeal to me. One day, perhaps. I still have a bit of time left,” the 31-year-old Paris Saint Germain striker told German magazine 11Freunde.
“Obviously, if I go to Germany, then I go to Bayern Munich.
“For me they are in the top five clubs in the world.”
Ex-Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has signed a three-year deal to take over as Bayern coach on July 1 and it seems unlikely Ibrahimovic will be heading to Munich anytime soon after the pair failed to see eye-to-eye during the Swedish striker’s single season at Barcelona.
Having played for the likes of Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and now PSG, Ibrahimovic said he is always interested in new places.
“I’ve lived in five countries, in Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and now in France, I got to know the people and the culture. This has shaped me,” he added.
Of course, the other country’s top division missing from that list is England’s Premier League, but with Ibrahimovic never quite appreciated in the UK due to not always showcasing his best play in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages, it seems unlikely.
In truth, so does a transfer to Bayern Munich.
Besides the Guardiola issues, Ibrahimovic is currently contracted to Paris Saint-Germain, one of the richest clubs in Europe.
They would surely demand a huge fee for their best player, and at 31, he would be represent little value for FC Hollywood, who are likely to look for younger targets.
