Zlatan Ibrahimovic is without a club because Manchester United did not want to extend the contract with him, but there is no time for concern.
Everyone wants Zlatan, and the media have given us a very interesting news today. Atletico Madrid is closest to bringing the former Barcelona, Juventus and Ajax star.
Ibrahimovic played a brilliant season at Old Trafford but suffered a severe injury to his knee, and because of that, even his career was compromised. But he has been successfully working and recovering, and the news that he will not stay on the island has surprised many, especially considering his enormous contribution to this year’s return of Manchester United to the top of English football.
There are yet no details on Ibrahimovic’s and Atletico’s arrangements. It is known that Zlatan is an expensive player – his wage is one of the biggest in European football, but Atletico clearly has enough money. The only problem lies in the Atletico suspension. Let us remind you, they have no rights to register new players by January 2018.
But neither Zlatan will be ready until then, so this story gets a different context. It will be interesting to see if this story will get a happy ending. A large number of football fans in Spain who are not Barcelona and Real supporters might finally get a superstar.
