Ibrahimovic: AC Milan were desperate to sign me… but there was nothing from Arsenal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims AC Milan were “a bit desperate” to sign him but the Paris Saint-Germain striker admits there was no offer on the table from Arsenal.

Rumours had suggested that the French champions were willing to sell the 33-year-old this summer, with Arsenal, AC Milan, Manchester United and Inter all linked with moves.

But when asked about AC Milan’s interest during a press conference with the Swedish national side, Ibrahimovic replied: “It was concrete from their side.

“A lot of interest but I said from the beginning that I will stay with PSG. I like it, we have a good team, my family feel good and it’s just positive with Paris and PSG. But they wanted, they wanted much.”

When pressed about Arsenal’s reported interest, the forward replied: “No, so the interest that existed, I have not committed myself to.

“It is Mino [Raiola] who takes care of the pieces. When I give notice that I want something to happen I get involved. But this summer I have been resting up, I enjoyed the holiday, but I know that Milan were a bit desperate.”
