Ibrahimovic had been linked with a return to Serie A via Bologna after leaving MLS outfit LA Galaxy at the end of his contract.
But the 38-year-old striker will not be moving to Bologna amid speculation over a switch to either Napoli or former club Milan.
"Ibrahimovic will not be coming to Bologna. He has made other choices," Sabatini told Tuttomercatoweb.
A return to Milan has been mooted for Ibrahimovic, who won the 2011 Scudetto during his two years at San Siro.
Italian rivals Napoli, however, have reportedly offered the ex-Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star an 18-month contract.
Asked about Ibrahimovic on the eve of Napoli's Champions League clash with Genk, head coach Carlo Ancelotti told reporters on Monday: "I haven't spoken to Ibra today but I did yesterday [Sunday] evening."
"He told me he is in Los Angeles at the moment," added Ancelotti. "He feels really good and weather conditions are just perfect there."
