Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirms he will leave Paris Saint-Germain, "like a legend"

The first step toward his next club has been taken.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Twitter account - 3.47 million followers; follows no one, because of course Zlatan follows no one - has apparently confirmed at least half of almost every transfer rumor story written about him for the last six months: he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

Characteristically modest, Zlatan - and that's why we love you.

Where to next? The rumor mill only thought it had a vacuum to fill up to this point. Now it has as many hours or days as Zlatan will permit until he confirms his plans, so expect the Ibra rumors to proliferate.

He has hinted recently that there is a schedule for an announcement: one that will ensure speculation about his future does not interfere with the international tournaments he hopes to grace this summer. So perhaps the news of Zlatan's next destination is not too far away.
