Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are preparing themselves for their former hero to leave the club this year. Indeed, football certainly is a fickle game, even for the biggest stars to ever grace the pitch.
Last season’s top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic is looking likely to move his career on, to either China or America this year after things have slowed down at Old Trafford following his injury at the end of last season. A sad end, though a necessary one if United are going to move forward.
Having been displaced as the first choice striker by summer signing Romelu Lukaku this term, Ibrahimovic will surely not be settling for a place on the bench on a regular basis and with new talent coming through, Zlatan may decide a March move to either league is best for his career at the moment.
Many of our long-time punters are expecting a lot of movement in and out of the Old Trafford door this window and wouldn’t be surprised to see a little of the floating deadwood shipped out sharpish.
Our landlord, after much discussion with the barman, takes a look at two potential United players that could follow Zlatan out of the door…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
