The Swede’s coaching confidant claims that the “crazy” forward is hoping to leave PSG for Serie A’s reigning champions either this summer or next year
Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain to return to Juventus, according to a former coach of the Swedish striker.
The enigmatic 32-year-old has won two successive Ligue 1 titles with PSG, starring in both seasons, but has continually been linked with a return to Italy throughout his time in France.
Stefan Hansson, who befriended the Swede during his youth at Malmo, claims that the striker wants to go back to Serie A in the next year and has his heart set on the current Scudetto holders.
“He was young and crazy – now he’s just crazy,” the current coach of Indonesian club Mitra Cutra told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We spoke on Skype a few days ago and he told me that he would like to return to Juventus, if not this year then next year. But it is not a matter of money.”
Ibrahimovic, who scored both goals in PSG’s Trophee des Champions win over Guingamp on Saturday, left Juventus in 2006 amidst the Calciopoli scandal which relegated the Turin club and subsequently played for Inter, Barcelona and AC Milan before moving to Parc des Princes in 2012.
Hansson will be taking charge of the Indonesian Super League All-Stars team which will face Massimiliano Allegri’s men on Wednesday, with kick-off at 15:00CET.
