According to the Independent, Zlatan Ibrahimovich’s agent, Mino Raiola has stated that he would like his agent, who has never played in England throughout his over 15 years playing career to make a move to England, claiming there are offers on the table from some English clubs.
The Sweden international’s contract with PSG ends next summer and the big man is yet to sign a renewal with the French Champions, fueling speculation about his future. Ibrahimovich will be available as a free agent for the first time in his career if he fails to sign a new contract with PSG before the end of his current deal.
Raiola has certainly fueled speculation by claiming there is a possibility the outspoken striker might make a Premier League switch and he also went further to say that he will personally be interested in the move. Raiola who is a top agent and a representative to a host of top players such as Paul Pogba, Mario Balotelli, Romelu Lukaku, Marek Hamsik, Blaise Matuidi and a host of others said, “I would like to see him in the Premier League.
” I think its a game that is made for him, his strength, his ability, his technique, the stadiums with fantastic atmosphere and how football is lived. It’s difficult now because for the first time in his life, he wants to be a free agent so that he can look around and have a feeling day by day what he wants to do.”
Raiola, who has been Ibrahimovich’s agent since 2003 also said, “There are lots of projects on our table but he has not decided yet. Can he go to England? In theory, yes he can because he will be a free agent and for sure there are some clubs always interested in him. What we will do in the end, I really don’t know.”
The independent links the controversial forward to Manchester United, but Arsenal have also been rumored as a potential destination for the Sweden legend. Both clubs are in need of forwards, but Manchester United seems to be in urgent needs of a striker as the club’s captain, Wayne Rooney have failed to deliver goals this season. Rooney recently ended his 2 month goal drought, scoring against Swansea on Saturday. The United man has just 3 league goals to his name so far.
34-year old Ibrahimovich have scored 15 goals in 14 league games this season, making him the league’s top scorer. He has created 19 chances for the French champions as well,which simply means his play doesn’t just ends at scoring goals, but he is also actively involved in build up plays. Ibrahimovich is the captain of the Sweden national side and also boasts of an impressive 61% shot accuracy in the league this season.
The ageless veteran has created 8 assists this season, both in the Champions League and the domestic league. He is also involved in defence as he averages 1 defensive action per game. His passing game is top quality. Ibrahimovich is master in the football arts of direct free kicks and his presence on the pitch guarantees some key passes that posseses the ability to change the course of any game.
Ibrahimovich perfectly uses both feet and has played all of his club football in Europe for the likes of Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, AC Milan, Barca and PSG.
Even as Ibrahimovich approaches the twilight of his career, his technical abilities have not eluded him, He has exhibited impressive consistency this season and also boasts of an impressive 26.3% conversion rate in the league. A statistic that fully backs him to succeed in a tasking atmosphere such as that in the Premier League.
