Zlatan Ibrahimovic has ruled out a move to the Premier League in the future after past interest from Arsenal and Manchester City.

The Sweden international has previously showcased his talent in the Eredivisie, Serie A, La Liga, whilst the 31-year-old is currently plying his trade for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Ibrahimovic, who turned down a trial at Arsenal in 2000, has been linked with a big-money move to City and the Gunners in the past but an England move has failed to materialise.

And the former Barcelona star insisted he has missed his chance to experience the Premier League.

“To come to England? My time has passed,” Ibrahimovic told BBC Sport.

“I am above 30, I have a good relationship with PSG, with the team. I feel that I can bring out all my qualities at PSG. I have a big responsibility also at PSG. So in my mind, no.

“But then you never know what happens in football. When I went to Barcelona, I was living my dream.

“In my head I was there for five years. In the end I was there for only one. So every time I plan my future, I change it. So better to take one day at a time.”
