Ibrahimovic could be set to finally come to the Premier League…
The Swedish superstar is in the final few months of his contract at PSG and is widely rumoured to call it a day over in France at the end of the season. He’s brought fame to his homeland of Sweden, passed the Alfonso Alves Eredivisie striker conundrum with flying colours, conquered Italy’s defensive nature and even had a not-so-pitiful attempt in Spain.
Now seemingly bored of ordering Blanc and Co. around, deciding the starting eleven and what-not, Zlatan is keen for a new challenge. With only two major league nations left for him to experiment with, England and Germany, and after some hard analysis, Ibra doesn’t seem one for the bratwurst hype.
With all the media links flying around, Ibrahimovic made a point of speaking to English journalists on Tuesday night after PSG’s win over Chelsea, saying: “I have another three months here and then what will happen? Big things will happen. Let’s see what happens.”
When pushed on the topic of a Premier League move, Ibra followed up saying, “let’s just say I am in shape.”
The question is, who will it be? Which Premier League club will nab the signature of the acclaimed blackbelt in taekwondo?
Manchester United lead the markets as our favourite at 5/2, as well as the media’s favourite club to sign him this summer. Anthony Martial under the guidance of Zlatan is a terrifying thought for any defender.
Arsenal and Chelsea share second favourite at 7/1, but we all know what happened the last time we thought Zlatan might join the Gunners.
There’s not been a summer for years where Chelsea haven’t been linked with Ibra, and with Falcao and Remy both possibly leaving, the current Premier League champions will need an alternative to their hitman Diego Costa. A Zlatan and Diego Costa partnership. Practically bullying.
There is one man that may influence the 6 ft 5 assassin’s decision: former boss Jose Mourinho.
Countless times Ibrahimovic has expressed his fondness for The Special One: “We worked together for one year at Inter. The feeling was great between us and my only regret is that we were together for only one year.”
One thing’s for sure, if Zlatan does end up in the Premier League, you can be sure he’ll be fond of going up against Joe Hart once again.
