Ibrahimovic heading to Qatar?

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted that he may ply his trade in Qatar after his contract with the Ligue 1 champions expires at the end of the season. 

Up till now Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move to MLS, but the 34-year-old has made it clear that nothing is finalised as of yet.

"My current situation is new to me. I have an expiring contract and that is a new experience. I am free to do what I want," Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying by L'Equipe

"I am focused on PSG for now. I still have six months to go on my current contract and I want to give my best for the team. I do not have a next destination in mind.

"A move to Qatar? I have a good relationship with [PSG president] Nasser Al-Khelaifi and with the people of Qatar, but I cannot say anything at this stage. Let's just say that a move to Qatar is an option.

"I am enjoying my football at the moment and I'm feeling well both mentally and physically. I am enjoying myself each game. We will see what happens."

Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic has also revealed that he may try his hand at coaching once he retires, especially as he has had the opportunity to work with a number of the game’s greatest coaches, including Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti and Laurent Blanc. 

"I do not think as a player," he said. "I have a lot of experience and have played under some great coaches. They have taught me a lot. We will see whether a career as a coach is an option at the end of my career."
