Manchester United’s hopes of signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer could be thwarted by the striker’s desire to move to London, according to Swedish football journalist Olof Lundh.

The Swedish striker’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with the forward’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain set to expire at the end of the season.

Ibrahimovic fuelled talks of a possible transfer to England over the weekend by admitting that he is interested in a move to the Premier League this summer.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham have all be touted as possible destinations for the 34-year-old striker.

Now, insider Lundh has suggested that the London clubs could be set to lead the race for his signature due to the forward’s desire to live in the capital.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Lundh said: “I think he is looking to play in Europe at the top level and, of course, the Premier League is interesting for him.

“I think he would like to live in London. Whether that would be Chelsea, Arsenal or maybe even West Ham, we will see.

“I think when you talk to his colleagues in the national team in Sweden who play in the Premier League they all place him in Manchester United, of course with Jose Mourinho possibly coming in, but I’m not sure Ibrahimovic would like to live in Manchester.

“‘It also depends on whether Manchester United reach the Champions League for the next season.”
