Man City can wait for the future - AC Milan new boy Ibrahimovic

AC Milan signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed his reason for snubbing Manchester City in the transfer window.

The Swedish striker moved from Barcelona to Milan recently after turning down a lucrative offer from City and he says the fact that the Eastlands club is not yet ready for a title helped him make his decision.

"City must fight Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal - sides which took years to build," he said.

"City are still a side for the future. I chose Milan because they are a team that can win prizes now.

"City can wait for the future but I can't."
