Ibrahimovic, 31, joined big-spending PSG from AC Milan in a €23 million summer deal and has become a huge hit at the Parc des Princes.

The Sweden international has scored 26 goals to leave Carlo Ancelotti's expensively-assembled side on the brink of the league title.

Agent Mino Raiola told Sky Sport his client was enjoying life in the French capital, but that the prospect of an eventual return to Serie A could not be dismissed.

"Today, I rule it out - tomorrow, maybe not," he said. "Everything is possible in the transfer market - but Zlatan is happy in Paris, and the club is happy with him. I see no reason for him to move.

"In Italy, only Juve, Inter and Milan could afford him, while elsewhere in Europe there are several sides that could. He has never hidden that Italy is his second home and that it is in his heart."

Raiola also dismissed claims in France and Italy that Ibrahimovic's wife may be unhappy with life in the French capital.

"I know her well," he said. "She is happy in Paris and will not influence on Zlatan's choices."

Some reports in Italy have suggested that Juventus - for whom Ibrahimovic played between 2004 and 2006 - are keen to bring him back to Turin.

He left the club after they were relegated to Serie B in the wake of the Calciopoli scandal.
