The fun and games with Zlatan Ibrahimovic have well and truly begun, and the 34-year-old striker hasn’t even put pen to paper on a contract at Manchester United yet. Today, a banner in the city centre was unveiled, and it is absolutely brilliant.
It is believed that Ibrahimovic paid for the banner himself, and the fact that it is right in the heart of the city, so close to the official Manchester City store really does make me laugh.
This just goes to show the measure of the man. He is a huge believer in his own ability, and you do need that arrogance and confidence to go as far as he has in the game.
Manchester United have slammed a real marker down with this signing. Many thought it wouldn’t happen due to the lack of Champions League football, but a deal is clearly in place, and what a brilliant bit of short-term business this is.
