ESC 2016: MÅNS ZELMERLÖW - TO HOST OR NOT TO HOST?

Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet published yesterday as nearly a sure thing the rumor that has been going on since May that Måns Zelmerlöw, Eurovison song contest 2015 winner with Heroes, will be the contest's presenter or host in 2016. The other tabloid, Expresssen promptly responded with comments from both SVT and Måns, entourage that nothing of that sort has been confirmed and all is out in the open. 
The fact is Måns would be a popular and professional host (unlike a string of previous Eurovision winners who have done the job as well) with a lot of experience in big events and live shows. I suppose the question is he also knows his value and following Conchita Wurst's example wants to have a proper slot to perform also his music to the Europe in the show(s). Yet, he won't accept being reduced a greenroom host or a side kick only and that's where the problem is: How to combine hosting the shows as the (ony) main star AND have time to give a huge show number, too, with all the effects and tricks SVT can provide in a show like Eurovision? Once all this is sorted out we well might see Måns in the stage of Globen yelling the magic words: Good evening Europe!
