Zlatan Ibrahimovic Transfer: Former Manchester United striker appears to have confirmed his next football club and it is not AC Milan or Tottenham.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the fans have come to expect the unexpected. Whether that is good or bad, is left for one’s own judgement. For instance, his latest Instagram post has left fans stumped and in confusion over his future and yet, in Zlatan’s case, this does not feel out of the ordinary.
With the Swedish striker’s contract with LA Galaxy coming to an end, he is now a free agent and can join any club that desires to employ him. There have long been rumours that he would make a return to Italy with AC Milan.
Tottenham’s hiring of Jose Mourinho as head coach left many speculating if the former Manchester United pair would be reunited once again. However, it appears that he has now joined a club that no one had even given a thought about.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic drops transfer hint
Zlatan Ibrahimovic uploaded a video clip on his Instagram that shows the shirt of Swedish side Hammarby. The back of the kit bears his name. Hammarby, based in Stockholm, have just finish third in the Swedish top flight. Which means they are in the first round of qualifying for next season’s Europa League.
While this may seem completely out of the blue, it is important to note that the Swedish side are part-owned by the Anschutz Entertainment Group, who are also the main investors in LA Galaxy. However, Hammarby’s head of communications Axel Pershagen, has said that a move has not taken place:
“Zlatan has not joined us yet. If he had signed a contract, it would be on our website”.
Hammarby coach Stefan Billborn also told DN in Sweden:
“I’d be really surprised if Zlatan came to us, I don’t believe it”.
With no confirmation from Hammarby, fans are unsure if this is a publicity stunt or a genuine transfer. It was only last month that Ibrahimovic appeared to confirm a move to Spain in a video posted on his Instagram. Instead, it turned out to be a promotion for a gambling company.
