The former Barca man's representative insists that the player has not fallen out of love with football and plans to continue playing at the top level for another couple of seasonsZlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent has reiterated that the Swedish striker is happy in Italy and intends to remain at AC Milan for at least two more years, but has admitted that his client could end his career in the United States.
Ibrahimovic sparked panic at the San Siro when he revealed after this month's Serie A defeat to Juventus that he has become disillusioned with the game.
However, the player’s representative, Mino Raiola, insists that Ibrahimovic remains as hungry as ever and has no intention of quitting Milan.
"He will not move," Raiola stated on Italian TV show La Politica nel Pallone.
"Zlatan wants to do another two, three years at the top [level]. Then we will see. He may decide then to go to America. At the moment, though, nothing has been decided."
Raiola also insisted that the controversy caused by Ibrahimovic’s comments after the Juve loss was much ado about nothing.
"Zlatan is fine, [but] the papers would rather create issues that do not exist," he said. "He returned early from the international break and he has a great desire to win with Milan.
"He got tired of football? These are things said instinctively, the tone was that of someone who has been saying the same things for years.
"There may be some fatigue, but Zlatan has no intention to quit."
Ibrahimovic, who turned 30 in October of this year, joined Milan last summer after a turbulent season at Barcelona, and won the Scudetto in his first season at the San Siro.
