Zlatan not a ‘spent force’ afterall

When former Sweden captain, Zlatan lbrahimovic, signed the contract papers to lace his boots for Manchester United for this season, critics tagged him a “spent force”.

At age 35, little did they know that the Swede has a fresh challenge of playing in England, which has kept his motivation high to reach a secret target in the English Premier League campaign.

That target is to be the highest goal scorer this season; though he did not reveal the targeted goal haul, his mission however is to score more goals.

Ibrahimovic has made a seamless transition to the Premier League, scoring 15 goals and 20 in total, since his arrival from Paris Saint Germain on a free transfer.

Although he has 22 assists, hat-trick against St Etienne, for a 3-0 win of Europa League, plus a goal from the 3-0 win over Leicester City, has made him the oldest EPL scorer.

Despite the old age, ltalian outfit Napoli is plotting a summer move for the Swede. Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has spoken of his admiration for the legendary Swedish striker.

The Swede is yet to finalise a 12-month extension of his contract at Manchester United despite the club being keen to tie him down.

Reports say Jose Mourinho will sit down with Ibrahimovic to discuss his future with the club, expressing confidence that the striker will remain at Old Trafford for another 12 months.
