Ibrahimovic: Rooney should join PSG
The 27-year-old forward has endured a stop-start campaign at Old Trafford this season, after struggling with both his form and fitness amid reports that he could be set for a move
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has advised Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney to join him at the French club, should he consider a switch elsewhere in the summer.
Goal.com exclusively revealed last month that Rooney has already told several of his club-mates that he could be leaving the champions-elect sooner rather than later.
After enduring a somewhat fractious relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson of late, amid concerns about his weight and the impact that this was then having on his fitness, Ibrahimovic believes PSG are the only club that the England international should look to if he decides to try to force through a move.
“If he wants to be part of the best project in football then there is only one club to sign for,” the Sweden captain told The Sun.
“Only he knows the decision he is going to make in the summer but the project we are trying to build here is clear.
“We are not content with being the dominant force in France, we want to be the top club in Europe as well.
“I can understand why the owners are interested in Rooney — he is in the top 10 of strikers in Europe.”
The 27-year-old’s future remains up in the air after he was omitted from the club’s starting line-up for their Champions League clash against Real Madrid last month.
