Ibrahimovic rejects Milan exit reports

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dismissed reports linking him with a summer move to Real Madrid and pledged his future to the Rossoneri, stating that he is "happy here, on and off the pitch".

Ibrahimovic, 30, has won a league title in each of his past nine seasons as a professional - claiming championship glory with Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona and Milan - and could make it ten in a row this season with Massimiliano Allegri's side currently a point behind Juve in the race for the Scudetto.

The Sweden international's talismanic displays for Milan this season have seen him linked with a return to La Liga with Real in some corners of the Italian press, but he insists his future lies at the San Siro.

"As I said six months ago, I am happy here," Ibrahimovic told the AC Milan channel. "I have a contract and I don't have any other thoughts.

"I am determined to end this season well with the Milan colours and then with my national team [at Euro 2012]. Milan has given me back a smile and the will to play. Milan is my future.

"I play well because I am happy here, on and off the pitch. After the holidays I will return to begin pre-season training with this jersey.''

Ibrahimovic has scored 23 goals in 26 league appearances for the Rossoneri this season and leads the Serie A goalscoring charts. He joined Milan in 2010 from Barcelona and is under contract with the Italian giants until June 2015.
