Ancelotti: Ibrahimovic will stay at PSG

The mercurial attacker has been linked with a return to Juventus, but his current club are determined to hold on to the 31-year-old
Carlo Ancelotti has stressed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not leave Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window amid interest from Juventus.

A number of recent reports claimed that the Sweden international has set his sights on a return to Serie A at the end the season, with Juve closely monitoring his situation in the French capital.

Nevertheless, coach Ancelotti has insisted that PSG have no intention to sell the prolific attacker any time soon.

"Many teams would like to have Zlatan, but it's PSG's luck that he plays here and is doing a fine job," the Italian told Sky Sport 24.

"He will still be with PSG next year, as will [Marco] Verratti."

The 31-year-old joined the Ligue 1 leaders from AC Milan in the summer of 2012 and has since become a key figure at the French side, scoring 33 goals in 43 appearances. He has a contract with PSG until June 2015.

Ibrahimovic's agent Mino Raiola recently invited Juventus to make an offer for the striker, but admitted later on that the former Ajax star has not instructed him to find a new club yet.

The 20-year-old Verratti, meanwhile, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid after impressing in his first season at PSG following his transfer from Pescara last summer.

The Italy international is under contract with the Parisiens until 2017.
