Zlatan Ibrahimovic expects to finish his career after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain ends in two years' time. The Sweden striker is in his third season a PSG and is under contract for a fourth, after which he feels the time may be right for him to quit playing.
Asked if he will finish his career with the club, Ibrahimovic told ESPN: "I have a contract until 2016. I will be 34 next season and I don't see myself continuing to play at the top level after that. So, probably, the answer is yes."
Champions League desire
That summer will see France host UEFA EURO 2016, where Ibrahimovic is likely to remain his country's talisman. He also retains ambitions of continental success at club level, having won league titles in four countries but never the UEFA Champions League.
PSG's superstar squad has been bolstered further this summer with the acquisitions of defenders David Luiz and Serge Aurier, and Ibrahimovic expects them to take the step up before he eventually retires.
"I think we can win it," he said. "We have a good opportunity. "This team is made to play in big tournaments.
"You need to work hard and to have a bit of luck with you. In the key moments, you need to have the small details on your side.
"I think we have that in our team now. We have more experience too, especially after last season. So we can do it.
"I have achieved what I wanted in my career, 100 per cent. I have won 23 titles. Of course it would be nice to win the Champions League, and I feel I can and will win it. But if my career finishes without it, I would still be happy and proud."
Ibrahimovic has been the foremost symbol of PSG's resurgence under their big-spending Qatari owners, topping the Ligue 1 scoring charts for the past two seasons.
"It is very special," he said. "I was here from the beginning. I wanted to join PSG for the project that I believed in at the time, and still believe in.
"I knew it would be a great choice, and so far it has gone exactly like I expected to be. I am very happy and proud.
"I think that to reach the next step, I have to do better than last year. I have reached the level I am at now because I have always wanted to be better than the season before."
