Zlatan: You will have to be patient with me

Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to keep everyone in the dark about where he will ply his trade next after claiming that there would be a “big announcement” on Tuesday. 

There is mounting speculation that the Swede will join Manchester United after he announced that he would be leaving Paris Saint-Germain last month. 

It was thought that Ibrahimovic would confirm his move to United on Tuesday as he said that his announcement would "be this summer's big bomb", but it was only used to hype up his new A-Z Sportswear line. 

"There is no confirmation. No saying 'yes'. You will have to be patient with me," he told reporters.

"You are a journalist, no? I want you to keep wondering where I will go, and keep making stories, because I enjoy it while the stories go out.

"When I feel tired, I will let you know where my next destination is."

When asked if he had finalised a deal with the Red Devils, Ibrahimovic said: "My future is A-Z. Follow A-Z and you will see my future. They will be wearing A-Z in Manchester also. Don't worry -- it is coming there."

During his time with Paris Saint-Germain, Ibrahimovic played an instrumental role in leading the French giants to Ligue 1 glory for four successive seasons. While he never won the Champions League during his time with the club, he made it clear that it was the right time to move on. 

"If I wanted, I could've stayed five more years," Ibrahimovic said. "There comes a point where you've done everything. Mission accomplished."
