Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores thunderbolt free-kick

Forget about precision efforts into the top corner, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has just shown everyone how to take a free-kick - by absolutely smashing it.

We all know the Swede possess a powerful strike and, when he was given a free-kick 20-yards out during PSG’s clash against Nice, he decided he would just kick it as hard as he can.

We’re not sure how hard his strike actually was, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the hardest a football has ever been kicked.

The ball rocketed past the wall and into the net before the goalkeeper could react - a thunderbolt.

The goal was Ibrahimovic’s 37th of an incredible campaign for him, and you can check it out below:

Pick that out!

But, that wasn’t Ibrahimovic’s first goal of the match. He had already opened the scoring in the 15th minute when he sensationally controlled a long ball from David Luiz before finishing.

Ibrahimovic’s side have already won the league title and couldn’t be blamed for having one eye on their clash against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

The two goals scored by Ibrahimovic will create even more interest in the striker at the end of the season. The 34-year-old’s contract expires in the summer and will be available on a free transfer.

However, earlier this week, Ibrahimovic revealed the wages he will be expecting if he moves to the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, the enigmatic striker is demanding a ridiculous £600,000-per-week deal which would cost a club at least £31 million for a one-season deal.

He’s good, but he’s not quite that good.
