Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 'offered' hilarious deal by German fourth division club

It’s hardly a surprise that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a wanted man.

He is one of the biggest names in football and, despite being 34-years-old, is one of the best strikers in the world.

So imagine how busy his agent, Mino Raiola, has been in recent weeks considering the Swede’s contract expires at Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Many clubs will be offering the enigmatic forward a lucrative deal with Manchester United seemingly favourites to land him.

However, not all offers that Raiola has received have been serious.

The offer

That’s because a regional fourth-tier side in Germany claim they've offered Ibrahimovic a rather hilarious deal.

Rot-Weiss Oberhausen released a statement on their official website which roughly translates to: “Our sporting director Frank Kontny is looking for a striker with good heading ability and the free transfer of Zlatan Ibrahimovic came to our attention.

“Ibrahimovic, also called God, has scored many goals for Paris Saint-Germain in the French league. Now he is looking for a new challenge and was offered to the club.

“Together with the sponsor and private donors, the association has managed to put together an attractive package. This agreement constitutes - besides a reasonable basic salary- the Ebertbad (the city swimming pool which was closed and is now used as a concert venue) to be filled with water for Ibrahimovic to go swimming, the city of Oberhausen will introduce a monarchy and appoint him King - KonigPilsener (a beer) will be renamed IbrahimovicPilsener.”

The club also revealed that the city’s electricity supplier will supply customers from Ibrahimovic’s house and, after Ikea have built their new stadium, they will sell Schweden-Happen (a Swedish dish) rather than Bratwurst.

Of course, it’s unlikely that Rot-Weiss Oberhausen actually pitched this offer to Ibrahimovic but there’s no doubt these sort of egotistical incentives would appeal to him.

Set for United?

However, it’s looking more and more likely that he will be linking up with former manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford with reports suggesting that Zlatan is closing in on a deal to join the Red Devils.

Ibrahimovic isn’t willing to reveal his next destination just yet, instead, he’s happy to see his name all over the back pages of newspapers for a while longer.

"I want to still write a lot of stories," he said. "I get excited when I see them because I want to see who is making up the best story.

"When I'm tired of it, I'll let you know where I will go."

While it’s not confirmed that he will be representing United next season one thing’s for sure, it’s highly unlikely he’ll be playing for Rot-Weiss Oberhausen.
