Tottenham dared to Zlatan

Tottenham Hotspur were interested in signing iconic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to a report in today’s Guardian.

The Swedish international is available on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season and apparently Spurs made a ‘concrete offer’ for the 34-year-old, only to be told that he was only interested in joining Manchester United which would see him re-united with Jose Mourinho.

Even if Ibrahimovic was interested in joining us, how we would have managed to have met his wage demands without disrupting the harmony of the current squad is another question.  He has apparently requested a sizeable wage packet of £220,000-a-week which United have agreed to.

Our highest earners are said to be on no more than £90,000-a-week which is a huge gulf between what Ibrahimovic was looking for.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Signing Zlatan would make even less sense than the David Villa rumours a while back. Zlatan should get over himself and retire gracefully to the USA. The French league is not of the same standard as ours.

    • AHAH, when he have had 1-2 bad seasons in a row maybe then retire to the Unite soccer state, he did score top 3 most goals in europe so I dont see why he can't continue, well unless u think this was his last great season and you want him to finish at the top.
