Mino Raiola: Napoli can forget about a Zlatan Ibrahimovic transfer

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola has insisted that Napoli can forget about signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic over the summer.

Uncertainty continues to loom over where the Swede, currently on a one year contract at Manchester United, would find himself next season, with some sources claiming that a move to China could be on the cards. 

The 35-year-old has previously remarked that he envisaged concluding his career at Napoli, citing his love for the city and experience in Serie A as the central reasons behind the potential move.

But Raiola, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, was adamant that such a deal would not take place over the summer.

“Ibra to Napoli? Forget it,” he said. 

“Zlatan won’t be in Naples [next season]. This dream won’t come true.”

The Swede has previously made it clear that his future prospects are, wisely enough, contingent on how he feels on both a physical and mental level over the summer.

One suspects, in turn, that Zlatan – a man driven solely by the prospect of winning big trophies – will opt for one of two extremes over the summer: the first being to hang up his boots altogether after concluding that, actually, another season at the highest level would be a strain; the second option would be to once again lead the line at Old Trafford heading into the 2017/18 campaign.
