Manchester United have not offered a contract to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to the Paris Saint-Germain striker’s agent.

The 34-year-old announced last week that he will leave the Ligue 1 club upon the expiration of his contract this summer and made his final appearance for Les Parisiens on Saturday.

Reports in France have since suggested that Ibrahimovic, who has been continually linked with a move to the Premier League, has received a contract offer from United.

However, Mino Raiola, the Sweden international’s agent, has denied that any such offer has been tabled.

"In this world we have to accept some journalists use their imagination and make things up," he told Sky Sports News. “The story is not factual.”

The reports of a contract offer, which appeared in RMC Sport, suggested that United were the only club willing to meet Ibrahimovic’s salary demands of € 15million (£11.72million) per annum.

While speaking after Saturday’s win over Nantes, Ibrahimovic suggested that he already knows the identity of his next club.

"I know where I will be going next season, but I will not be saying where tonight," he told beIN Sports, after scoring twice in a 4-0 victory.

Los Angeles Galaxy, Milan and several Chinese Super League clubs have been linked with the former Barcelona and Juventus striker.
