Cape Town - Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits to having made a decision about his future and hinted that he could be returning to Serie A.

Few other topics have received as much speculation as where Ibrahimovic will be playing his football next season, having been heavily linked with Manchester United and AC Milan.

"I haven't seen the newspapers, but it's always fun to read what you write about my future," the Swedish star told reporters at a press conference on Thursday. 

"I have several options, with offers from England, Italy and other countries. I have made my choice, yes. I made my choice long ago.

"Is France my second home now? Italy is my second home, France is my third."

The 35-year-old has played for three Serie A teams in his long career: Juventus, Internazionale and Milan. During his eight years in Italy, Ibrahimovic made a total of 219 appearances, scoring 122 goals.

When asked about the Red Devils in the interview, the Sweden international gave further hints that did nothing to clarify his next destination.

"I think it's a great move to bring in [Jose] Mourinho to Man Utd," he said. "If you want to win, you get Mourinho.

"I have spoken with Mourinho since I left Inter. We have had contact. But not in the last week, no. Will we work together again? I don't know."
