Man Utd offers Zlatan Ibrahimovic £250k per week contract in £24m deal
Manchester United is set to offer 34 year old Zlatan Ibrahimovic a mega £250k per week salary in order to tempt him to snub Chinese League, Arsenal and Chelsea interest.
The Sweden and PSG player is at the prime of his career and has refused to sign a new deal with PSG. Man U officials have made him their prime target with his contract set to expire on the 1st of June, 2016.
See the full report below.
‘The 34-year-old will be a free agent in June after failing to agree a new deal with Paris St-Germain.
‘He is keen to end his career in the Premier League and it is understood United are willing to offer him a short-term deal worth £24m.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward hopes to tempt Ibrahimovic with two-year deal worth a staggering £250,000-a-week. Ibrahimovic is also a target of Arsenal and Chelsea, but United are willing to blow them out of the water and flex their financial muscle.
The deal on offer would make Ibrahimovic one of the highest-paid stars in English football. A club source said: “The team needs a major injection of talent and some superstar additions.
“Zlatan fits the bill. He might be getting on a bit but he can still do it at the highest level and would be worth the risk in terms of big wages because no fee is involved.”
‘The news is also another strong indication that Louis van Gaal is heading for the Old Trafford exit at the end of this season.’
