Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has decided which club he will transfer to this summer, but declined to reveal his destination, according to ESPN FC.

“It’s not a difficult choice, I know what I want,” Ibrahimovic said. “The future is already written. I have made my choice.”

The Swedish striker, who has played the last four seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, has been rumored to be considering a deal with Manchester United. When asked if he could confirm whether United had made him an offer, Ibrahimovic just smiled and said, “We’ll see what happens.”

Ibrahimovic, 35, said he has received offers from teams in England, Italy and outside Europe. 

Mourinho’s move to Manchester United delayed by endorsements

Fueling the rumors that he is headed for Manchester, Ibrahimovic added that he has a “great relationship” with Jose Mourinho, who is expected to be named manager of the club soon.

Mourinho is also reportedly seriously targeting Ibrahimovic.
