Ibrahimovic is on City’s radar once more.
Manchester City are looking for new strikers this summer and have turned their attention to Paris Saint-Germain’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Parisians sign Edison Cavani, reports L’Equipe.
The Swede had been targeted with a reunion with Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, but City have jumped to the front of the queue due to their urgency for a forward.
The 2012 Premier League champions have sold Mario Balotelli to AC Milan and Carlos Tevez to Juventus in the last six months, leaving the club with only Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko as first team strikers.
Therefore the Citizens have been in the market for new attacking talent and Ibrahimovic is beginning to look like the ideal signing.
The 31-year-old is more likely to be open to a move away from Paris with the imminent arrival of Edison Cavani from Napoli as well – a similar type of player to the Sweden international and a direct rival, with PSG favouring one forward in the starting XI.
Despite Ibrahimovic’s reputation as a difficult character there is no doubting the striker’s capabilities in front of goal, having scored 280 career goals in 554 matches for club and country.
The Swede has won trophies in four different nations, including six Serie A titles, two Eredivisie medals, and one La Liga and Ligue 1 triumph, in a career in which the attacker has played for the likes of Ajax, Barcelona, both Milan clubs and Juventus.
However, Ibrahimovic has never plied his trade in England and with the talented midfield support on offer at City, there is perhaps no club more suited for the prolific forward.
