I'm Leaving Paris Grateful - Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season with his last game at the Parc des Princes against Nantes.

Despite his advancing years Ibrahimovic continues to enjoy success at PSG, for whom he has scored 36 goals in 30 Ligue 1 games this season.

Paris Saint-Germain striker and pending free agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in discussions to play in Major League Soccer, multiple sources told ESPN FC. "I want to thank my colleagues, the staff and everyone at the club", he added. "My heart stays with the fans - they have been incredible since the day I arrived and because they are the best fans in France".

However, he will then run out in a PSG shirt one more time when they face Marseille in the French Cup final on May 21 at the Stade de France. The player took to Twitter to say "au revoir". "I came like a king, I leave like a legend but I will be back".

Chelsea captain John Terry has been offered a new one-year deal, the English Premier League club said Friday.

Martial has been named in France's Euro 2016 squad, and is tipped to play a key role as Les Bleus seek to win the trophy on home soil.

Premier League giants like Manchester United and Arsenal were in contention to sign Zlatan.

In Paris, he will be remembered for his goals - 152 in 178 games - but also his controversial personality. A return to AC Milan or a move Stateside to join the Los Angeles Galaxy have also been mooted.

Ibrahimovic, 34, would hardly be the first aging foreign star to cross the pond for his final professional seasons, as there have been 114 so-called "designated players" in the league since it instituted salary-cap work-arounds in 2007. However has we have seen that can often backfire for teams, with players like Rafa Marquez and Frank Lampard failing to treat it as a full time job or serious sporting competition.
