PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is urging Wayne Rooney to quit Manchester United and join him in Paris. The French side were ready to pounce when the England forward looked ready to leave Old Trafford in the summer.

And Sweden captain Ibrahimovic told The Sun: "When there was talk of Rooney joining us in Paris it was a prospect that excited me.

"I think he made it clear in the summer that he wanted a fresh challenge - and things have not been going so well for Manchester United this season.

"If he still wants to move next summer or in January I would urge him to come and play with me in Paris.

"The only direction this club is going is up."
