Ibrahimović signed with Malmö in 1999 & transferred to Ajax in 2001. He would go on to play with Internazionale, Barcelona, A.C.

On 14th August 2013, he scored an international hat-trick at the Friends Arena, scoring Sweden’s first three goals in a 4–2 friendly win against Scandinavian rivals Norway. He scored twice in a 3–2 play-off defeat to Portugal – billed as a battle between Zlatan and Cristiano Ronaldo as the team failed to reach the 2014 World Cup.
In December 2014, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter ranked him the second-greatest Swedish sportsperson ever, after tennis player Björn Borg. In October 2015, he became PSG’s all-time leading goalscorer.

As of August 2020, his contract with AC Milan is about to expire. In 2020, he compared himself to Benjamin Button after becoming the first person to score 50 goals for both Milan clubs. He said: “I’m like Benjamin Button. I’ve always been young, never old.”
