Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Three potential destinations

Published Add your comment

With the arrival of Edinson Cavani to Paris St Germain this summer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could soon be shown the door by manager Laurent Blanc. 

With a wide selection of attacking options at Blanc's disposal, Ibrahimovic may be labelled surplus to requirements.

The Swedish star is undoubtedly one of the world's best strikers, with pace, power, accuracy and lethal finishing, he could transform one of Europe's top clubs this summer. 

Here we explore Ibrahimovic's possible destinations: 

Real Madrid

With current manager Laurent Blanc supposedly fallen out with Ibrahimovic and Carlo Ancelotti, with whom he got on so well with at PSG now managing the Spanish giants, Madrid may be the ideal switch for Ibrahimovic. 

He may fit in well with Madrid's style as neither Benzema nor Higuian are on top-form. With his pace and power and his ability to latch onto crosses, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could slot nicely into Real Madrid's starting 11. However, will Ibrahimovic's ego clash with other egos in the Spanish camp, like Cristiano Ronaldo's or Sergio Ramos'?


As Jose Mourinho's search for a new striker continues, Ibrahimovic could be a huge signing for the Blues. As David Moyes is defiant that Wayne Rooney is not for sale, the Swedish international could be the answer to Jose Mourinho's prayers. 

Chelsea are relatively short up front, with only Romelu Lukaku, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba. The fact is that neither Torres or Ba are world class and Ibrahimovic could also turn young sensation Romelu Lukaku into a great player, and the two could potentially form a formidable partnership for the London club.


Another manager looking for a new striker is Arsene Wenger. With the Gunners never properly replacing Robin van Persie, this transfer window could be the perfect time. Zlatan Ibrahimovic could really make a difference for Arsenal. 

The much travelled Swedish international provides lots of experience - which is what a young side like Arsenal needs. He could also fire the Gunners back up to the top of the table due to his goal scoring ability and would give even the best Premier League defenders nightmares. Since negotiations have hit a stumbling block with Higuain, now would be an ideal time for Wenger to bid for the 31-year-old.
