According to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent, Mino Raiola, Zlatan got a €100million offer from a Chinese club, but he decided to join Manchester instead. When he signed for the English club, he was a free agent, after his contract with PSG had terminated.
During the transfer window, Ibrahimovic received a lot of offers, but his focus was to stay in shape and improve his game, as Raiola said.
For the Il Giornale Raiola declared:” Ibrahimovic is the best. He turned down €100m net from the Chinese. He doesn’t want more money, he wants to win”. He also added:”I’ve been lucky, I’ve always had champions. Zlatan, (Pavel) Nedved, Maxwell and now (Blaise) Matuidi and (Gianluigi) Donnarumma.”
With his move to United, Ibrahimovic showed that he wanted to play in one of the best leagues in the world. Ibrahimovic has been more than successful so far because he has won a domestic title in every league he has been in. Moreover, he can brag with more than 20 personal rewards.
In Manchester, the Swedish superstar reunited with manager Jose Mourinho. These two cooperated at Inter Milan and the duo won two Serie A titles and one Supercoppa Italiana.
Meanwhile, the experienced striker quickly adjusted to English soccer. He has already scored six goals in a season, including the one against Zorya in Europa League.
Manchester United will play against Stoke in their next match and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Ibrahimovic hit the target once again.
