Stockholm - Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed on Wednesday that his agent was recently approached by AC Milan about a return to the San Siro, but that he was not interested in leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

"There was interest from other clubs. It's Mino (Raiola), my agent, who looks after that. You need to ask him," said the 33-year-old Swede at a press conference near Stockholm, where is currently on international duty.

"If I wanted something to happen, I would have got involved. I preferred to rest, enjoy my holidays, look after my family. But I know Milan were a bit desperate.

"What I can say is that I took it as a compliment that there might be interest in me."

Ibrahimovic, who played for Milan from 2010 to 2012 and won the Serie A title in his first season with the club, added: "It was concrete from them. And they were really interested in me from the start.

"I am going to stay at PSG and I'm happy there. We have a good team and the family are happy."

Ibrahimovic is in the final season of his contract at PSG and, when asked about his future plans, he simply replied: "We will see."

Ibrahimovic and Sweden are preparing to play Russia in Moscow on Saturday in a crucial Euro 2016 qualifier before hosting Austria next Tuesday.
