Ibrahimovic Confirmed, Leaving From PSG


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
The French league will be missing its most charismatic player next season after Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced on Friday that he will leave Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old Sweden striker has taken to Facebook ahead of Saturday's Ligue 1 finale with Nantes to announce: "My last game at Parc des Princes. I came like a king, left like a legend."
Ibrahimovic, revealed by Forbes this week as the world's third highest earning footballer, has been with PSG since 2012 and this year won his fourth Ligue 1 title.

He has enjoyed his most prolific campaign, scoring 36 top-flight goals, but Champions League glory eluded him again as Laurent Blanc's men were beaten by Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

Ibrahimovic said.

“I am very proud of the last four years,”
“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."


Ibrahimovic joined PSG from AC Milan in 2012 after the French club missed out on the league title despite spending more than 100 million euros ($123 million) on players. His impact was immediate and PSG clinched its first championship in 19 years the next season.
Ibrahimovic joined Milan from Barcelona on loan in 2010 and the move was made permanent the following year. He also spent three seasons at Inter and two at Juventus, winning the Serie A title every year, although the two he won with Juventus were later revoked because of the match-fixing scandal.
Ibrahimovic also won the Dutch league twice with Ajax and the Spanish title with Barcelona before lifting another Serie A trophy with Milan.

Fans will hope to see him sign off in style when PSG take on Marseille in the Coupe de France final on May 21.
