What happens when Zlatan Ibrahimovic joins a Premier League?

The great Swede is on the verge of the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, and the effervescent striker is yet to expose his mind on whether he would extend his stay at the French Capital or leave it to a final adventure, maybe. The 34-year old has enjoyed a cult status throughout his career for his words outside the ground and deeds inside the ground. Albeit he owns a self-praising attitude, the football world has always seen the brightest side of his, and enjoyed it to the core.

What happens when Zlatan Ibrahimovic joins a Premier League?

Zlatan started his career in 1999 with his hometown club Malmo FF, and it was only a matter of time he caught the world attention. In 2001, he moved to Dutch giants Ajax, where he enjoyed a similar successful career. Then he enjoyed great spell with Inter Milan, Juventus, Barcelona and AC Milan before joining his current club, PSG in 2012.

Despite the growth in age, time rarely caught the talent of Ibra, as he scored 141 goals for PSG in 167 appearances across all competitions. But already 34-years old, the Swede is nearing the end of his prime time. With his contract with PSG ending soon, it is one last shot pending for Zlatan to test himself in the world’s toughest football league, the Premier League.

Zlatan as a free agent, will not be a tricky buy if the club can meet his whopping pay scale. Arsenal legend Thierry Henry himself revealed that he have high hopes of a union between his former club and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But with Wenger’s policy of wage and reluctant stand against signing ‘old’ players will obstruct a chance for a move to Arsenal, for the striker. And obviously, Zlatan will not fit in Arsenal’s gameplay. There is back story to the connection between the club and Zlatan, and is an infamous one. Arsenal invited Ibra to attend a trial at Arsenal in 2000, which the striker refused with a counter-statement, “Zlatan don’t do auditions”.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have plenty of strikers in the form of Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Danny Ings which implies Liverpool will not move for the Swedish striker.

Manchester United is an apt destination for Zlatan, provided the club is currently accused of ‘Boring’ football and the Swede could definitely spark the Red Devils. But the chances for a move is quite uncertain as the future of their manager Louis van Gaal is equally uncertain. Nonetheless, Zlatan is the type of player Manchester needs to increase the morale and togetherness of the club.

Chelsea can definitely meet the wage demands of the striker but does not seem to be interested in the striker, because of his age and the big pile of strikers they already have.

Manchester City, yes it is where Zlatan will probably head if he desire to move to England. The Middle-east money will be surplus to his wage requirements and the Citizens needs an experienced player to help the club move forward. They are not afraid to spend on veterans either as it was evident when the signed Frank Lampard last season.
