After scoring a ten minute hat trick to help PSG to a resounding 9-0 victory this past weekend, sealing a fourth successive French title, Zlatan Ibrahimovic certainly sent out a clear message to potential suitors for next season. With his contract with the French giants coming to an end at the end of the season, the mercurial Swede now looks set for a change of scenery, having joined the club back in 2012. Having recently joked that he would only stay at the club if they swap the Eiffel Tower with a statue of himself, Ibrahimovic seems certain of his future departure.
The eccentric forward who boasts a footballing CV including spells with the likes of Barcelona and Juventus, has put Premier League clubs on red alert, as the 34 year old shows no signs of slowing down.

A reunion with Jose Mourinho could well be in the offing, should the former Chelsea man take over from Louis Van Gaal at Old Trafford.

However, with an in form Ibrahimovic around, no team will relish a fixture against the Scandinavian side.
With the draw for the Champions League quarter final taking place this Friday, it remains to be seen who PSG will meet, as Ibrahimovic bids to win the famous trophy for the first time in his career. Having dispatched of Chelsea in the previous round, the French champions will certainly be one of the favourites this year with the likes of Angel Di Maria and Lucas complimenting the attributes of Ibrahimovic nicely throughout the campaign so far.
