The Sweden international, who is the club’s all-time top goalscorer, will leave the French champions when his contract expires in the summer but has vowed to return in the future
Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims he will leave Paris Saint-Germain “like a legend” after confirming he will not be renewing his contract at the club.
The 34-year-old’s deal with PSG expires at the end of the season, although he has yet to reveal his next destination.
The Sweden international has spent four seasons in France, winning Ligue 1 in each campaign, the Coupe de la Ligue three times and also the Coupe de France last year.
And in a statement following his decision to leave in the summer, Ibrahimovic says he has “loved” his time with the capital club and is proud to have played a key role in them becoming an emerging force in Europe.
“I am very proud of the last four years,” Ibrahimovic said.
“I loved every day I spent here. The Paris Saint-Germain has become a STAR club in the world and I played a key role moving it forward.
“It is now the right time for me to take a different path. I would like to thank my team mates, the technical staff and all the people in the club.
“My heart is with the fans. They were amazing from the first day I came here. They are the best fans in France. It is not a farewell but only an AU REVOIR.
“I came like a king I leave like a legend but I will be back.”
