Raiola dismisses Ibrahimovic to Galatasaray rumours

The Sweden international’s agent had allegedly discussed a move to Turkey, but he has now denied having spoken to anyone from the club

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola has denied that he has held talks with Galatasaray over a summer transfer.

On Tuesday, a number of Turkish sources published quotes from Raiola confirming that a Galatasaray representative had approached him to discuss a potential move, fuelling speculation the 33-year-old could be on his way out of PSG.

However, Ibrahimovic’s agent has now taken to Twitter to rubbish suggestions he spoke with any Turkish journalists about a move to the Istanbul side.

“Never spoke to any Turkish journalist about Zlatan in my life, going around are lies. I don’t talk, but they invent,” Raiola commented via the social networking site.

“Never met Galatasaray for Zlatan.”

Ibrahimovic has been heavily linked with a move away from PSG this summer, with AC Milan and MLS mooted as possible destinations.

However, PSG have so far been adamant that the prolific attacker is going nowhere and will stay put until his contract expires in 2016.
