Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has decided to his next move but has remained coy on a possible transfer to Premier League club Manchester United.

The 34-year-old Swedish striker has already announced he is leaving Paris St-Germain and has revealed he has had numerous offers from around the world.

“The future is written,” he said “I made my choice a long time ago. I just have to push the button.”

When asked about a move to United, he responded: “Let’s see what happens.”

Jose Mourinho is set to be named United manager and he worked with Ibrahimovic for one season at Inter Milan.

The pair won the Serie A title in their time together in 2008-09 before the Swede moved on to Barcelona.

“He [Mourinho] is the man to bring them [Manchester United] back to the top,” said Ibrahimovic.

“I had fantastic time working with him. If we will work again I don’t know.”

Ibrahimovic is currently on international duty as his country prepare for Euro 2016 and says he has “many options”, including a return to Italy.

“There is concrete offers from the Premier League. But I don’t give guarantees,” he added.

Ibrahimovic made his debut for hometown club Malmo in 1999 and went on to play for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG.

He has scored 392 goals in 677 games and last season was his most prolific, with 50 goals in 51 matches – a record for PSG. His 38 league goals is also a club record.

“I have proved age is a number,” he said. “Everything is in your head. If I want to make it I will do it.”
