Ibrahimovic gives his verdict on whether he could make stunning Premier League switch
By Alex Stevens
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he is too old to contemplate a sensational move to the Premier League next year.
The 34-year-old rose to the occasion for Sweden on Tuesday night as he scored twice in a 2-2 draw with Denmark to give his country a 4-3 play-off win and steer them into Euro 2016.
Ibrahimovic’s Paris Saint-Germain contract expires next summer but, having played in Sweden, Holland, Italy, Spain and France, the forward is convinced he has run out of time in his career for a move to the Premier League.
He said: “I think it is too late to come to England. I am very happy in PSG, I have my last six months and let us see what happens afterwards.
“I am enjoying it, I enjoy every day on the field. While I am playing at the top level I just want to join it and do my thing. I do not know where I will finish my career let us wait and see.”

Ibrahimovic, who famously rejected an Arsenal trial when he was a teenager, has been linked with the Premier League big hitters – including Manchester United and Chelsea – over the years.
He held talks with AC Milan last summer and a return to Italy is the most likely option for the Swedish superstar at the end of the season.
Asked about his significance to Euro 2016, Ibrahimovic told Mail Online: “It will be magic for everyone. And it will be a big magic for me to be there.
“I am looking forward to it. It is probably going to be my last tournament with the national team and I am very excited because before these two play-off games there was all this kind of talk that we were not able to beat Denmark. Now we are very happy and I am satisfied.
“I let my feet talk. I don’t talk in public.”
