Zlatan Ibrahimovic could move to Qatar if he decides to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of his contract come June 2016.
The 34-year-old’s existing contract with the Ligue 1 champions is due to expire at the end of the season and he has yet to make a decision on his future.
Ibrahimovic has been heavily linked with a move to MLS, but he has hinted that a move to the Qatar Stars League is an option as well.
“My current situation is new to me. I have an expiring contract and that is a new experience. I am free to do what I want,” Ibrahimovic is quoted by L’Equipe.
“A move to Qatar? I have a good relationship with [PSG president] Nasser Al-Khelaifi and with the people of Qatar, but I cannot say anything at this stage. Let’s just say that a move to Qatar is an option.
“I am enjoying my football at the moment and I’m feeling well both mentally and physically. I am enjoying myself each game. We will see what happens.”
“I do not think as a player,” he added.
“I have a lot of experience and have played under some great coaches. They have learned me a lot. We will see whether a career as a coach is an option at the end of my career.”
