Given France's prodigious reputation for producing fine wines, no wonder Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels at home in the country's capital Paris.
"I'm like the wine. The older I get, the better I get," the mercurial forward for Paris Saint-Germain and Sweden told CNN's Amanda Davies in an expansive interview conducted at Camp des Loges, the club's suburban training ground.
PSG is the 34-year-old's seventh professional club, but will the French champions be the last team Ibrahimovic plays for?
"I can continue many years. But the thing is, do I want to continue?" Ibrahimovic asks himself, before putting his (sizable) foot down.
"I decide my future. I decide what I want to do. Nobody else," he says defiantly. "If I decide this will be my last year, maybe it is. If I decide, it will be my last contract, I decide that. Nobody else. So I will decide when the moment is there."
Given he is, in fact, improving with age, maybe Ibrahimovic should put off any potential retirement plans. In nine league appearances this season, he has netted nine goals, propelling PSG to the top of Ligue 1 by 13 points.
