Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been promised a managerial job at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the end of his playing career. The 34-year-old Swede is set to leave the Parc des Princes on a free transfer this summer, but the Parisians have promised to offer him a job as soon as he announces his retirement.
PSG also thanked the record-breaking striker for his efforts during a four-year spell in the French capital and hailed him as one of the club's best-ever players. "The club and its player have decided mutually not to renew the contract that links both parties until 30 June 2016," a statement from the club explained.
However, PSG confirmed they would welcome Ibrahimovic's return to the club at the end of his playing days. "They agreed as well that once the player ends his active football career he would be back in the club in a managerial capacity," PSG said amid reported interest in the player from Manchester United.
"Paris Saint-Germain is forever deeply grateful to Zlatan for his amazing four years that made him the greatest striker and one of the very best player in the club's history."
Ibrahimovic has previously spoken about his interest of playing in the Premier League and a move to Manchester United has been widely discussed, in large part due to his exceptional relationship with Jose Mourinho, who is rumoured to be replacing Louis van Gaal at the end of the current season. However, the Swede's eye-watering pay demands and talk of interest from clubs in the MLS could prevent him from making the switch to managerial duties.
