The Norwegian starlet has spent an impressive loan stint in his homeland with Stromgodset, helping them to claim their first league title in 43 years.
His consistently exciting displays have alerted a number of teams, who are all ready to offer him a way out of City at the end of the season once his contract expires.
However, despite the presence of a number of experienced international players who operate in a similar position to himself at the club, the 22-year-old says that he would love to stay:
“I am very happy with my successful loan spell at Stromsgodset and helping them to win the title,” he is quoted by The Mirror.
“Several clubs have been in contact, but I still don’t know what’s going to happen in January.
“I am back in Carrington this week and want to meet Manuel Pellegrini.
“I would love to get a chance in the first-team, get games and prove myself to the boss that I can play at the highest level from January as my loan agreement doesn’t finish with Stromsgodset until December 31st.
“I’ve been at Manchester City since 2007, I became a supporter of the club and feel like a local boy.
“I would love to be given a chance and give everything for this special club.”
Everton and Crystal Palace are just two English sides to have been credited with an interest in Ibrahim, while a host of clubs from Spain, Italy and Germany are also thought to be keen.
