Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent has told France Football his client has "not asked me to transfer him to another club" but did leave the door open to a summer departure from Paris Saint-Germain.

Signed from AC Milan last summer, Ibrahimovic, 31, has been increasingly linked with a move back to Serie A, with one of his former clubs, Juventus, reportedly at the head of the queue of suitors.

However, the Sweden international forward's agent, Mino Raiola, revealed he had received no request from the player himself to leave the French capital, even if he was equivocal about whether Ibrahimovic would still be a PSG player next season.

"Today, yes; tomorrow, I don't know,” Raiola, who has represented Ibrahimovic since the striker's Ajax days, said. “My work consists of being ready for anything.

“As of today, Zlatan hasn't asked me to transfer him to another club. He wants to be part of the Paris project, which he thinks is an interesting one. I don't know where Juve and Napoli are at in their efforts [to sign him]. There are teams that would like to recruit Zlatan, but I will never tell you their names."
