Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no stranger to controversial comments.

However, one recent quotation from the Swede has sparked something of an unusual monetary debate with his previous employers Paris Saint-Germain. It appears the transition to Manchester United has been a messier one than it first seemed.

With the 34-year-old having hit out at the Parisians for supposedly missing his final salary, the Ligue 1 side have finally responded. After all the debate, it might actually prove Ibrahimovic who needs to buck his ideas up.

Salary comment

When Ibrahimovic was asked what he missed most about his time with PSG, he responded by stating: ‘My last salary. That is what I miss.’

In typical Zlatan style, he didn’t refer to his teammates, the supporters or the city, but his wages. Nevertheless, the majority took this as a simple joke and jibe from the Swede and nothing more than that.

However, it has since emerged that Ibrahimovic is in fact missing his last salary.

Having notched up an incredibly impressive 156 goals in 180 appearances with the Parc de Princes side, this incident proves a sorry point on which to end his relationship with the French outfit.

PSG response

Despite this being brought into the public eye by Ibrahimovic, PSG haven’t conceded the case and have in fact pointed the finger back at the player.

According to Le Figaro, last season’s Champions League quarter finalists stated: “The club has always respected its commitments. 48 months of wages have been paid on time.

“We are now waiting for a document the player is contractually obliged to provide us with to release final bonus payment.”

Consequently, it seems that Ibrahimovic is the man who needs to sort his paperwork and contact his old club. As a result of this, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the 34-year-old should have kept the situation under wraps.

A seemingly innocuous comment about his old club may actually have evolved into a genuine administrative situation in which Ibrahimovic is at fault. While the scenario is far from major, it certainly doesn’t do the Swede any favours.

It appears that despite his monstrous salaries, money doesn’t come overly easy to Ibrahimovic after all.
