One of the most recent transfer rumours we’ve heard by the bar also fits into the ‘most ridiculous’ category to boot and it concerns the walking ego himself that is Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
A couple of days ago, The Independent along with every other media outlet claimed Ibrahimovic could be an £11 million target for Arsenal with the outspoken Swedish international having grown fed up at Paris Saint-Germain.
Before this news was shot down immediately by Ibrahimovic’s agent, Gooners everywhere were incredibly sceptical that Arsene Wenger would ever bring such a forthright personality into a tight-knit squad while disrupting all of the team spirit that has contributed towards two successive FA Cup triumphs.
While they admitted Ibra undoubtedly would make up his transfer fee in shirt sales, not to mention the fact that he is still a very capable forward at 33-years-old, this one was simply never going to work out given the player’s personality.
Once upon a time, Ibrahimovic told Arsenal he doesn’t do auditions and it appears he doesn’t do false transfer speculation either!
