The world class Sweden international has been linked with a return to AC Milan this summer. However, UK media seem to think that Louis Van Gaal might be interested in his services and is working hard to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.
Zlatan spoke to Sky Italia after PSG’ 4-2 win over Fiorentina and suggested that his future will be decided by super agent, Mino Raiola.
“Should I stay in Paris? My future is in the hands of Mino Raiola,” he told Sky Italia.
Raiola represents the likes of Mario Balotelli, Paul Pogba etc and has strong connections with Italian club, AC Milan. However, it is also true that Raiola always delivers his clients to the club that pays most.
Known as ‘the pizza guy’, Raiola has always been vocal about his monetary motivation and recently claimed that his client Pogba will sign for the club that pays the most amount of money.
In such a scenario, United’s financial muscle will certainly prevail when up against a struggling Milan.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be an outstanding addition, not only to Manchester United, but also to the Premier League, which boasts some of the best talents in world football. However, considering his age and financial demands, a deal is always going to be tough.
Manchester United have the means to pull it off, but there is no doubt they will be looking at a younger alternative first.
