A dull Thursday morning has just turned into a game changer for the English Premier League, as Swedish legend, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, fresh off an expired contract at Paris Saint-Germain, has announced he’ll be taking his talents to the U.K. next season.
And he won’t just be playing for any team, no.
He’ll be wearing red.
And playing alongside some guy by the name of Wayne.
And getting all of Manchester’s support as he dons the jersey and becomes a Red Devil…
An absolute game-changing acquisition for Man Utd., albeit not yet confirmed by the club itself, the addition of Ibrahimovic hopes to bolster an attack that saw the the Red Devils through to a 5th place finish in the table last year, despite only producing a lackluster 49 goals.
Without United confirming the deal yet, obviously financials are yet to be disclosed. But one can only imagine Man. U is ponying up a pretty penny for Ibra’s services, given the exorbitant transfer amounts the striker has commanded in the past.
Prior, Zlatan has stated that he hope to play the game well into his forties (he’s only 33 now), and there were rumors of United offering him a one-year deal when his lofty PSG contract expired.
It’s a good day to be Zlatan. Wait, that’s everyday.
