Ibrahimovic dismisses AC Milan rumors, remains happy at PSG

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has brushed aside speculation that he will leave Paris St Germain this summer despite reports linking him with a return to AC Milan. The Swedish forward joined PSG in July 2012 in a 20 million euros deal after two seasons at Milan. Ibrahimovic, who is under contract with the Ligue 1 champions for another season, is currently on international duty with Sweden preparing for Sunday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Montenegro.

"There's no truth behind those rumors that link me to Milan," Ibrahimovic said in a press conference on Friday."I'm a PSG player and I have one year left in my contract and I want to respect it. For me it's not important to play in the Champions League but to play in a club that I like and right now I play in a club that I like. Moreover, I will also play in the Champions League. You never know what will happen in football, but I'm happy at PSG. We had a magical year, we won everything we could win and made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League."

Ibrahimovic, 33, greatly contributed to PSG becoming the first club in France to win all three domestic trophies - the Ligue 1 title, the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue. He scored 19 goals in 24 league appearances as PSG clinched their fifth league title while he also struck four times to help Laurent Blanc's outfit clinch the Coupe de France.

Ibrahimovic insists he has a good relationship with former club Milan, especially with Rossonero administrator Adriano Galliani: "We speak often but that means nothing," he said. "Galliani and I have been in contact since I left Milan." Milan are looking to reinforce their squad after a disappointing season which saw them finish 10th in Serie A and miss out for a second straight year on European football.


Ibrahimovic is expected to start against Montenegro this weekend. Sweden are second in Euro 2016 Group G, four points behind pool leaders Austria and four points ahead of Sunday's opponents.
