Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a brilliant character.

The Swede has produced enough incredible quotes in his career to fill an entire book.

Earlier this month, the Telegraph wrote an article containing the 20 most ridiculous things he’s ever said.

“I can’t help but laugh at how perfect I am.”

“One thing is for sure, a World Cup without me is nothing to watch.”

And what does he get his girlfriend for her birthday? “Nothing. She already has Zlatan.”

Three brilliant quotes from Ibrahimovic.

And now Ibrahimovic has got himself into a conversation with… the Eiffel Tower.

You must be wondering why on earth the Swede is chatting to Paris’ landmark.

Well, that’s because Ibrahimovic proclaimed that he would only remain at Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season if the Eiffel Tower was knocked down and replaced by him.

The official Twitter account replied to Ibrahimovic’s claims by saying: “I love your humour and Paris is so beautiful… But La Tour is me.”

And the 34-year-old has backed down in his demands with a sentimental reply.

“Thanks for the response @LaTourEiffel and I do agree with you - Paris looks beautiful from up here where we stand - and I love you too.”


As you can tell, Ibrahimovic is likely to leave Paris at the end of the season.

His contract at Parc des Princes expires in the summer and there is likely to be massive interest in the world-class forward.

Despite being at the end of his career he’s been magnificent this campaign, scoring 35 goals in 38 matches in all competitions this season.

He helped PSG wrap up the league title last weekend by scoring four goals in a 9-0 rout over Troyes. After the match he asked asked about his future.

"For the moment, I won't be at PSG next season," he told reporters, per Sky Sports. "I still have a month and a half of competition left. What happens next year, for the moment, I don't know about it."

But PSG president has admitted that the club will do all they can to keep hold of their star.

"Zlatan is magical," said Al-Khelaifi. "He is a great player. We are going to talk him and see what he wants to do. We want him to stay."

After winning league titles in Holland, Italy, Spain and France, Zlatan has been linked with a move to the Premier League for his swan song.

And, unsurprisingly, there appears to be plenty of interest from England.

West Ham are reportedly monitoring the situation while Manchester United have also been linked.

But the biggest speculation has surrounded his possible move to Arsenal.

Club legend Thierry Henry told Sky Sports that he had “heard that Ibrahimovic was interested” in a move to the Emirates.
