Manchester United are looking to solve their goal scoring problem by making a move for PSG’s Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich.
The striker could be leaving PSG at the end of the season and it has been reported that Ibrahimovich would be joining David Beckham’s MLS franchise.
Ibrahimovich’s current deal will expire in 2016 and the striker has refused to sign a contract extension with the Paris based club; but David Beckham’s Miami based MLS franchise will not start playing until 2017 meaning the Swedish Striker will be available for 12 months.
With United in need to solve the current striker crisis; a short term deal of 12 months would be a welcome idea to help solve the goal scoring issue in the interim.
This would not be the first time that Manchester United would be counting on the experience of a goal poacher to help their course as another Swedish international Henrik Larsson did several season’s ago.
The veteran striker joined United in January of 2007 for a 3 months spell from Swedish side Helsingborg after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Alan Smith were both injured leaving United with only Wayne Rooney and injury prone Louis Saha as the recognised strikers. Larsson scored 3 goals in 13 appearances for the Red Devils, not a bad goal return for 35 year old.
Zlatan would perform better; he is 34, physically built for the Premier League and a real goal poacher.
United would benefit from his immense experience only if they can seal a deal for him and tame his ego because in Louis Van Gaal; United have an egoistic coach too.
