Ibrahimovic relishes chance to play for Bayern Munich before retirement

The PSG and Sweden star admits the Bundesliga has always held an appeal for him -- especially the current champions.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he would relish the chance to play for Bayern Munich before he retires.

The outspoken Swede has been touted for a return to AC Milan this summer, with president Silvio Berlusconi admitting only last weekend that he still wants to sign the striker despite the arrivals of Luiz Adriano and Carlos Bacca.

Ibrahimovic, however, has claimed he has one eye on playing in the Bundesliga before he retires and telegraphed his interest in the German champions specifically.

"It’s certainly a league that fascinates me. Maybe one day I could play there, I still have time," the 33-year-old told 11Freunde. "If I went to Germany, I’d have to play for Bayern. They’re one of the five best teams in the world."

Any prospective deal to take Ibrahimovic to the Allianz Arena would be complicated by Josep Guardiola’s position as head coach, however, given the turbulent relationship between the duo during their time at Barcelona.

The former Inter forward’s current contract at Parc des Princes expires in the summer of 2016.
