De Laurentiis claims that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be leaving PSG, should Chelsea be interested?

New, comments

Zlatan!

Michael Regan

Edinson Cavani is almost certainly going to PSG, meaning they now have two of the premier center forwards on the planet. Some would call that a problem, but it's one that every other club on the planet would be envious of.

So how are PSG going to handle the center forward overload? Aurelio De Laurenitis is under the impression that they've decided to ship out Zlatan Ibrahimovic:

10.42 - "Cavani? Was only attached to the money." "Ibrahimovic will not play with Cavani, has already promised to other shores. Cavani's money for the stadium? For stage I will spend my money," De Laurentiis these responses to those who asked these two questions.

This should probably come with a major disclaimer, as De Laurentiis is an obnoxious blowhard that has a long history of making public comments about thing he has absolutely no knowledge of. That said, Ibra has been known to be a little bit sulky, and it's certainly possible that he'd want another move after PSG officially add Cavani.

Zlatan is on a fairly ridiculous wage, and is certainly at the point of his career where he should begin to decline fairly quickly. Even in his 30's though, he's still one of the elite players in the game and would very much be in the discussion for the Premier League's best player from the moment that he arrived in the Premier League.

If PSG really are shopping Ibrahimovic, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester City would be the three most logical destinations for the big Swede. I'd certainly be thinking about a pair phone calls to see what PSG and the player are thinking, as it's just not very often at all you can add a player capable of all the things that the Zlatan can do.
