Zlatan Ibrahimovic laughed off rumors linking him with a move to AS Roma on Tuesday, insisting that he will see out his Paris Saint-Germain contract, which runs until 2016. The Swedish striker, speaking after PSG’s 1-0 win against Inter Milan at the Dubai Football Challenge, also denied reports that he had fallen out with PSG coach Laurent Blanc.
“Could I return to Serie A? No. Some have talked about it, some have even announced it, but it’s not true at all. I have another year on my PSG contract, so I’ll stay for now and then we’ll see what happens. These stories are invented.”
The well-traveled striker, 33, also said he had no plans to retire when his PSG contract runs out. “I hope that the Zlatan of today is still the strongest. I try to improve myself every season, as long as I’m making progress I want to play, but the day that doesn’t happen then I’ll stop.”
