City wants Ibrahimovic
Manchester City have made a bold move for AC Milan’s £25m-rated striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
City Boss Roberto Mancini will pay the Swedish superstar £300,000 a week.
That will easily make him the highest paid player in the Premier League, dwarfing even City midfielder Yaya Toure’s £250,000-a-week deal.
But, incredibly, Ibrahimovic, 30, has asked for time to consider the move.
It is Mancini’s second attempt to bring the ex-Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan striker to The Eithad and this time he is determined to succeed.
Mancini signed Ibrahimovic while at Inter Milan for £22m in 2006.
And now he is ready to break the bank to capture the 6ft 5ins forward by offering a massive signing-on fee, huge bonuses and lucrative image rights — as well as that staggering weekly wage.
