Swede says weather would scupper move to British shores

Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he will not consider a summer move to the Premier League. Barca recently recruited David Villa from Spanish rivals Valencia in what was believed to be a £35million move, heightening speculation the Swedish striker could be on his way out of Camp Nou. The frontman has reportedly been linked with a switch to Arsenal, with Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas going the other way. However, the 28-year-old has dismissed such suggestions saying the climate of the country would make any move unlikely.

Rain

He told Swedish lifestyle magazine Café: "England doesn't feel close. I don't like rain." Ibrahimovic also ruled out a return to the club where he started his career, Malmo, who ply their trade in the Swedish Allsvenka league. But the former Inter Milan star said he would consider moving into a coaching role in the league once he retires. He added: "Football will always be in my heart, it is a part of me, but I will not make any guest appearances in the Allsvenka. "Not as an active player at least. Maybe I can contribute my knowledge to Swedish football in some other way."
