Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he may be tempted to stay with the French champions, if a statue of himself is erected in place of the city's iconic Eiffel Tower.
The 34-year-old's cheeky response to the ongoing speculation over his future came as he hit four goals in a 9-0 demolition of Troyes which sealed a fourth successive Ligue 1 title for Qatari-backed PSG with eight games to spare.
"For the moment, I won't be at PSG next season," Ibrahimovic, whose current deal ends in July, told beIN Sports.
"I still have a month and a half of competition left. What happens next year, for the moment, I don't know about it."
Ibrahimovic, who arrived in Paris in July 2012 from AC Milan, then added: "If they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of me, I will stay at PSG. I can promise that!"
Earlier, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted that he wants Ibrahimovic to stay at the club.
"Zlatan is magical," said Al-Khelaifi. "He is a great player. We are going to talk him and see what he wants to do. We want him to stay."
Ibrahimovic's four goals on Sunday took his league total to 27 in 24 games this season.
