A year after Arsenal were reportedly interested in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Paris Saint-Germain, should they return with an offer?
- Wenger has history with Zlatan
- Striker scored 28 goals last season (all comps) in new league
- Manchester United not going to offer 35-year-old new deal
With Manchester United set to allow Zlatan to leave this summer despite him netting 28 goals in all competitions last season before suffering a cruciate ligament injury at the beginning of May, Arsenal could return for the 35-year-old.
The Gunners were linked with signing the Sweden international years ago when Arsene Wenger asked him to have a trial and he refused, and again last season when Arsenal were rumoured to be offering Zlatan a two-year deal worth £250k-per-week in wages.
However, Jose Mourinho joined United and lured the striker to Manchester instead. Now, Zlatan is injured and Jose is said to be letting him go seeing as he only signed a one-year-deal in the first place.
While the striker’s current injury, age, and wages are off-putting, this is a man who’s scored over 400 club goals in all competitions and 62 for Sweden.
He joined United from Ligue 1 giants PSG after scoring 38 league goals in just 31 appearances, and went on to score 17 in 28 in a completely different country.
He’s a tried and tested, world class winner. The likelihood of Arsenal signing Zlatan now is slim, but it couldn’t hurt to ask, right?
