Zlatan Ibrahimovic Hints At London Stadium Move

Never one to be short of an opinion or a story, Zlatan Ibramimovic took time out from criticising Cristiano Ronaldo for suggesting Lionel Messi should move to Italy for a new challenge, by suggesting that 'Zlatan', as he likes to call himself in the 3rd person, might well make a surprise return to the Premier League in a short term loan capacity with a 'big club' in London.

We of course thought this information was a bit of 'click bait' even though it came from an Italian Radio media outlet, but unbelievably the story does have legs! Currently resting with his family, the 'top notch' one is well aware of Manuel Pellegrini and West Ham United, indeed he was nearly signed a few years ago before Hammers bid was blown out the water by a far more lucrative offer from Manchester United.

Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying "I've played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal and for my national team, for me life is a challenge that I like and I like to make people happy. There has been talk of a Cameo role at a 'big club' in London on a short term basis but negotiations are at an early stage".

Since moving to LA Galaxy in the MLS, Ibrahimovic has scored 22 goals in 27 appearances, David Sullivan is a known admirer of Ibrahimovic and although he was unable to put a deal together before, it is thought that with the added gravitas of having Manuel Pellegrini a short term loan deal could be negotiated.

Of course all of this is assuming Marko Arnoutovic will be off to China as looks increasingly likely, not everyone has the longevity of Zlatan who is a bit of a generic freak from the same gene pool that Pablo Zabaleta must have come from! We'll have more on this later, time zones prevailing. - Ed

The strop,i like that,and it sums this bloke up,where ever he goes he thinks hes bigger than the club.We need to build a team that is to go forward and be consistant,not wasting time keep pandering to certain players egos.I also feel that Sullivan looks for big pats on the back from supporters in doing...........Look what I have done for you all,i brought a big name in,he must be good!!!! Hes over the hill im afraid.

Remember what all the media were saying about the unlikelyhood of Anderson arriving from Lazio?

We could all do without the Hollywood stars and I think Pelle would prefer somebody less of a show pony too but for half a season to fill the gap left by Arnie is better than trawling the likes of Preston for a player only just cut out for the Championship for way too much and hardwork getting shot of.

Apparently Tottenham are now expecting a shock move for Arnatouvic, due to Kane's suspected long term injury. Are the rumours getting more and more ridiculous. They are willing to meet the Pounds 40 million price.

could this 'china' thing all be a smoke screen manoeuvre by Arnautovic to get a move to chelsea or spurs? if the offer came in first, we'd throw it out immediately but now its like we're resigned to him going to china so he could say well I'm still going but not to china.

If he ended up at the spuds,kane injured & son due to go on international duty

I thought the very same thing myself,he is wanting to finish his career on a high,where is the prestige in going to china,what have they got on the lines of champions league or cups,only shed loads of money,but then you just disappear into the abyss and forgotten.
