According to the Daily Mail, Paris Saint Germain superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic will demand a world record wage of £600,000-a-week, dwarfing the current Premier League record of Wayne Rooney’s £260,000-a-week. The Italian publication Footmercato previously reported, that Chelsea have offered the Swedish powerhouse a two-year deal worth almost £10million a season.
Despite turning 34 in October, the hitman has continued to find the net with remarkable regularity, bagging 35 goals and 16 assists in 40 games in all competitions this season. Moreover, via Opta, Zlatan is the fastest player to score 100 goals in Ligue 1 (115 games) since Carlos Bianchi (110 games).
- Considering Ibra’s age he might only be a short-term solution for either Arsenal, United or Chelsea and it’s less likely they to agree £600,000-a-week salary.
- The Blues usually employ a policy of only offering one-year deals to players over 30.
- United need striker, Zlatan is a late bloomer, but looks more sensible if he joins Chinese clubs, who are hunting for superstars and are ready to pay an enormous amount of money to secure their services.
- Swede’s agent Mino Raiola insisted a decision has already been made on his client’s future but they are not ready to reveal his next destination just yet.
Considering these facts, Gib Football Show concludes that the rumours claiming ‘Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal Target Wants Move, But Demands a £600k a-week Salary’ are ‘mostly false’.
