Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s agent has said a decision on where to move this summer will not be motivated by money.
The Swedish striker’s contract with Paris St.Germain runs out this summer which means he’d be able to leave on a free transfer and there will certainly be no shortage of offers.
With 39 goals in 39 appearances for PSG this season, Ibrahimovic has been in stunning form and despite being 34 he feels he still has more to offer but whatever he does decide to do won’t be driven by financial incentives says his agent.
“Zlatan is motivated and all clubs who offer him a contract know that,” he said.
“He doesn’t need to continue for financial reasons, he wants to prove himself at the highest level, just as he has the other years when people thought he was too old.
“I’m not saying the financial aspect is not important at all, but his motivation is not money. If you are the best, you must be paid as the best.”
So, to clarify, his decision won’t be driven by money but he wants to be paid the best because he is the best? That sounds to me like the financials will certainly play a part in it all.
For Man United, we need a new striker and everyone is well aware of that but whether a 34-year-old in the twilight of his career, who will demand to be our top earner, is the right move is up for debate.
