Ibrahimovic sets quit date

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he plans to quit football in June 2014.

Ibrahimovic, who left Barcelona to return to Serie A in the summer, is on loan at the San Siro and will be 33-years-old when he plans to hang up his boots. Milan have the option to make his loan move permanent next summer for 24 million euros (£19.7 million) and the striker has agreed terms on a four-year deal.
