Zlatan Ibrahimovic Juventus return: Paris Saint-Germain star 'wants to go back', according to former coach
Stefan Hansson claims Swedish star will return to former club
A former coach of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's has claimed the Paris Saint-Germain striker wants to return to his former club Juventus.
Stefan Hansson, a former coach of Ibrahimovic's at Swedish club Malmo, says the superstar striker told him he could return in the next year.
Ibrahimovic spent just two years in Turin from 2004-06, scoring 26 goals in 92 matches.
It was his least prolific period as a player in terms of goals - he has since scored at least 20 goals in all but one of the eight seasons since he left.
The Old Lady won the league in both of his seasons there, but the titles were revoked because of the Calciopoli scandal.
The striker, now 32, moved to Inter then Barcelona and Milan before making his big money move to PSG.

"Zlatan wants Juve," Hansson told Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
"If not now, next year. He told me the other day: 'Stefan, I want to return to play for Juve. If you can not now, I'll do it in 2015.' It's so."
Juventus are also unsure of the future of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal. The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Manchester United but according to his national coach Jorge Sampaoli, United boss Louis van Gaal has been put off a potential £47m move because of Vidal's knee injury.
Juve are also rivalling Liverpool for the signature of Ibrahimovic's PSG team-mate Ezequiel Lavezzi.
