One of the most decorated strikers in the world of football at the moment, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make a big money move away from Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.
The 34-year old is out of a contract at the end of the season in League-1 and has already revealed that he is no expecting to extend his contract with the Paris outfit.
This has put a number of clubs from all around Europe on high alert.
The forward has also stated that he would love to finish his career in the Premier League which will see a number of EPL clubs which can afford his wages fight for his signature this summer.
Arsenal and Chelsea are thought to be plotting a move for the 34-year old but Manchester United are understood to be the front-runners for his signature.
Especially with Jose Mourinho taking over the Old Trafford outfit, Ibra, who has a good relationship with the Portuguese might make the move to the club before the start of the next season.
The Swedish international will be in Manchester for the 2nd leg of the Champions League tie between the two teams and the PSG skipper Thiago Silva made controversial statements regarding Zlatan’s future on the eve of the City game.
The Brazilian, speaking to the media ahead of the game said that there is no other player like Zlatan but added that English football is not up to the standard and titled it ‘ the second rate’.
“I know he has offers from England – and it is a big league – but I don’t think there is a team in England that is at the level of PSG at the moment. For me, it would be a step down in quality for him.”
The Premier League has surely lost most of its glamour this season with the likes of Chelsea, United and Liverpool all struggling for consistency and with clubs likes Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City playing in the Champions League from England next season, Silva may not be completely wrong.
He also added that the whole team does not want Zlatan to leave and that it was up to him to make a decision about his future.
“Of course, I want him to stay at PSG, I cannot imagine us without him,” Silva added.
In a recent interview, Zlatan said that his age does not bother him and that it is just a number.
He said “I have never been better. The way I feel today is the best I have ever been. I was born old and I will die young. That is how it looks.”
So do you think Zlatan has what it takes to rule the Premier League next season?
