Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return to AC Milan this summer, according to the Sweden international's agent.

Ibrahimovic, 34, is set to leave the Ligue 1 champions when his contract at the Parc des Princes runs out at the end of June.

Ibrahimovic has previously indicated a willingness to join Manchester United, according to Sky Sports News HQ, although only if manager Louis van Gaal leaves Old Trafford at the end of the campaign.

However, Ibrahimovic's agent has claimed his client may return to Serie A, where he also played for Juventus and Inter Milan.

"Ibra could return to Italy, to Milan," Mino Raiola told Italian GQ.

Raiola also represents Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who is currently on a season-long loan at Milan.

Raiola, though, has ruled out Pogba leaving the newly crowned Serie A champions for Chelsea this summer, "at least not right now".

And Raiola also believes Balotelli would have been a match for Barcelona star Lionel Messi if he only had the same attitude to his career as Ibrahimovic.

Balotelli has only recently returned to competitive action amid an injury-hit campaign at San Siro.

However, despite earning plaudits for a string of composed performances, the Italy international is set to be excluded from his country's Euro 2016 squad by coach Antonio Conte.

"If Balotelli had the same attitude as Ibrahimovic, Messi would have had a few less Ballon d'Or awards," said Raiola.
