There are some seriously excited faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems Manchester United and Arsenal could be in line to land Zlatan Ibrahimovic – according to the Daily Mail at least.
The publication seem to think that the Paris Saint Germain forward is considering leaving the Ligue 1 champions, and thinks the time is now or never for a final big move – to England.
We think both United and Arsenal are desperate to land a player who can fire in the goals, and with Wayne Rooney looking abject in the opening two games, we can see United manager Louis van Gaal making a move for another forward to help share the goalscoring load – and Zlatan could well be that man.
Arsenal meanwhile of course have Olivier Giroud, but quite if he is good enough when the toughest sides are facing the Gunners remains to be seen.
Our resident Gooners here in the Tavern feel that Ibra would be a sensational coup for the club, but they all feel that it unfortunately will not materialise….
United fans……. Do you want to land Zlatan? How bad has Rooney been this season? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
