Zlatan Ibrahimovic is keen on a blockbusting one-season move to the Premier League this summer.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker, now 34, is set to leave France when his contract expires at the end of the season.
He looks destined for a move to the MLS in 2017, and is likely to join the David Beckham-led franchise in Miami.
But Ibrahimovic is likely to be on the lookout for a 12-month deal at a new club this summer before heading to Florida.
When asked about the prospect of coming to these shores after scoring in PSG’s 2-1 Champions League win over Chelsea on Tuesday, the Swede put England’s elite on red alert.
‘I have another three months here and then what will happen? Big things will happen,’ he said. ‘Is the Premier League something I fancy? Let’s just say I’m in shape.’
Ibrahimovic excelled at Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho, finishing top scorer as they won the 2008-09 Serie A title and, if the Portuguese coach takes over at Manchester United, Old Trafford would be his most likely English destination.
