Paris Saint Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted he is flattered by the reported interest shown in him by Serie A champions Juventus.

The Bianconeri have been linked with a move for the Sweden international in the summer if the Ligue 1 leaders opt to cash in on the 31-year-old.

However, Ibrahimovic is contracted to PSG until the summer of 2015, although he has welcomed speculation linking him with one of his former clubs.

"If Juventus really want me, it would be an honour for me to play for them."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on reported interest

"If Juventus really want me, it would be an honour for me to play for them," he told Sky Sports Italia. "They are a fantastic club with a great team and a great project.

"It's an honour that they are interested in me, but at this time I am only thinking about PSG and winning the title with them."

Meanwhile, Juventus' general director Giuseppe Marotta has quashed speculation linking Ibrahimovic with the club, revealing they would not be able to afford his high wage demands.

"Juventus, as well as other Italian teams simply cannot afford to buy Ibrahimovic," Marotta claimed.

"He would have to cut his wages, but I don't think it would be possible."
