PSG striker Ibrahimovic reveals turning down Man City

PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed how he came close to signing for Manchester City.

Ibra writes about City in his new book, 'I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic'.

"When I was forced to leave Barcelona by Pep Guardiola in 2011, sure I knew all about the incredible things that had happened at Manchester City and all the money that seemed to be there since the crew from the UAE had taken over.

"City could surely become big within a few years. But I'd soon turn 29. I didn't have time for long-term plans and money was never a big thing. I wanted to go to a club that could be good now and there was no club with a history like AC Milan."
