Ibrahimovic: I'd be interested in Bayern Munich move
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has heralded the positive progression currently being made at Paris Saint-Germain.

The French giants are in a three-way tussle at the top of Ligue 1 with Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille, and they can tie Lyon for first with a win over Lille on Sunday. PSG also qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League by topping their group.

The Sweden striker, who joined from AC Milan last summer, is relishing the new-found pressure of expectations at the Parc des Princes after a less-than-ideal beginning to the season.

"The team are making progress, the club are growing and everything is new," Ibrahimovic told TF1. "My situation is different, I have an obligation to help get the team results. Everyday there's something new, and I try to learn from this. The PSG project keeps advancing, and that is positive.

"But that progress doesn't come overnight, it takes time. Football is complicated and anything can happen. I've lived with pressure for years, because I have played for so many great clubs. When one signs for Juventus, one's perspective becomes global. Everyone knows who you are.

"This pressure became normal for me, but when I came to Paris, it did not seem normal to people, but it was for me. And that is how it should be."

PSG, which is unbeaten in its last nine matches across all competitions, will face Valencia in the Champions League knockout stage next month.
