Global superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has thrown a spanner in the works ahead of any move to the Premier League this summer, by demanding wages in the region of £600,000 PER WEEK!
The landlord has spotted this news in the Daily Mail, and after nearly chocking on his morning coffee, he resigned himself to the fact that he will never see the ex-Barcelona star play in the top flight of English football.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United were looking set for a three-way battle to secure the Sweden international’s signature, but given these crazy demands any move now looks to have its doubts.
This news has disgruntled a fair few punters here in the Tavern and one Chelsea fan is outraged, stating that for a 34-year-old to be demanding that money it is simply crazy.
Another punter, a Manchester United fan, is playing pool in the weekly knockout competition and he thinks although Zlatan is good he remains unproven in the Premier League. He doesn’t think any team in their right mind will pay such crazy money.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea fans, what do you make to this astonishing news? Would you pay Zlatan £600,ooo per-week?
