Manchester United Football Club are still in the market to land world class stars this summer, to try and boost squad morale and bring in that big name to prove everything is still on an upward spiral. One man linked with an Old Trafford move is Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
According to the latest reports coming out of France, Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to double his €3million-a-month wages, to €6million if he makes the move to Manchester – which is over £600,000-a-week.
This would be a huge risk for the club, despite how capable Zlatan Ibrahimovic can be on his day. The 34-year old Swede is having an outstanding season in Ligue 1, but he isn’t getting any younger, and with all going well you’d be lucky to get two decent seasons out of him.
What happens if he picks up a major injury that all-but ends his career, and United would be left to pick up the pieces and pay him out of his contract which would be just throwing money away.
