“I am 38 years old and have the enthusiasm of a kid, with that same desire to win," Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"That, for me, is everything.
"I am not yet thinking about my future, as I will evaluate with my family.
"In order to continue playing, I need something special that can keep that fire burning within me, whether it's here or elsewhere.
"Italy is my second home.
"I will listen to all offers, but I want to fight for the maximum target.
"If I were to come back, I'd want to challenge for the Scudetto, not just be signed by someone because I am Ibrahimovic.
"I can still make the difference, I'm not a zoo animal to be put on display for people to see.
"I can still get 20 goals in Serie A.
"Having experienced spells at some of Italy's top clubs, Ibrahimovic has sounded out a possible move to Napoli.
"I enjoyed the documentary dedicated to Diego Maradona, no one is like him," he stressed, even as he was quick to add.
"Seeing the love of that city would almost make me want to try an experience at Napoli, as it would be fantastic to replicate what Diego did.
"I'm not saying that I will go there as the final decision will depend on several factors, but that is a team that creates enthusiasm.
"With me, the Stadio San Paolo would be full every Sunday.
"And then there's Carlo Ancelotti, a great coach,” Ibrahimovic submitted.
