Ibrahimovic would snub England
24 May 2010 - 08:42:43
Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears to have ruled out a summer move to the Premier League.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been linked with moves for the Sweden international.
Barca's £35million capture of Spain striker David Villa from Valencia last week is believed to have pushed Ibrahimovic further down the pecking order at the Camp Nou.
The 28-year-old striker, who only joined the Spanish champions himself from Internazionale in a £45million transfer in July 2009, regularly found himself on the bench during the second half of a debut season in Spain where he scored just 16 goals.
However, Ibrahimovic claims he is not considering a summer move to England.
"England doesn't feel close," he told a Swedish magazine. "I don't like rain."
Arsenal were believed to be the favourites to sign the striker as part of any swap deal involving unsettled skipper Cesc Fabregas.
