Stockholm - Paris Saint-Germain star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has applied for a US visa, according to a Swedish media report on Sunday, stoking speculation about his future with the Ligue 1 champions.

Ahead of Sunday's crucial game against Marseille, tabloid Aftonbladet said the 33-year-old PSG striker had applied for a non-tourist visa at the US embassy in Paris last month.

"He was there on March 19 and applied," an anonymous source told the paper, adding that the immigrant visa he applied for allows long-term stays.

The Swede has a contract with PSG until June 2016 and has previously said he considered ending his career with a major North American club.

While speculation was rife over whether Ibrahimovic was already in discussions with a club, Aftonbladet said there had been suggestions that the trip could also be related to an advertising contract.

Ibrahimovic will go before the disciplinary commission of the French league on April 9 for scathing comments targeting the referee and the country of France after PSG's 3-2 top flight defeat at Bordeaux on March 15.
