King Ibrahimovic confirms legendary PSG exit

King Ibrahimovic confirms legendary PSG exit


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he will play his final Ligue 1 game for Paris Saint-Germain against Nantes on Saturday.

The Sweden international’s contract expires this summer. Previously, the player said he could sign an extension but that seems out of the equation now.

Ibrahimovic, named by Forbes this week as the world’s third highest earning footballer, has been with PSG since 2012. This year, he won his fourth Ligue 1 title, scoring 36 top-flight goals in the process.

His list of honours over a sparkling career includes league titles in four different countries. Sweden, Italy, Spain and France.

The news will put a host of Europe’s top clubs on high alert, with Manchester United and MLS outfit LA Galaxy rumoured to be possible suitors.

Fans will hope to see him sign off in style when PSG take on Marseille in the Coupe de France final on May 21.
