Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp jokingly had a conversation about the attacker's transfer to the German club, according to Goal.
Klopp recently stated that he would love to coach the Sweden international at some stage of his career. The Malmo-born star was quick to remind the BVB boss of his comments - when they met during Monday's Fifa Ballon d'Or Gala at the Kongresshaus in Zurich.
And in front of the television cameras, Zlatan asked Klopp: "When are you bringing me to Dortmund?"
"I would have to sell the whole team first," replied Klopp.
Then the PSG striker surprisingly stressed that he would happily make some sacrifices to join Dortmund.
"No, I will come to Dortmund for free," Ibra said.
"You are coming for free?" asked Klopp before turning to the cameras to have Ibrahimovic's comments confirmed: "Did you hear that?"
The 32-year-old attacker repeated his promise but joked that he hoped PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi wasn't watching the interview.
"I will come for free to Dortmund. This conversation is not for the PSG president."
Dortmund are in the market for a new striker following the pre-agreed transfer of Robert Lewandowski to Bayern next summer, but the Puskas awardee is unlikely to make the move to the Westfalenstadion - as his contract with les Parisiens lasts until June 2016.
