With Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future supposedly up in the air, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards. Too good to be true? Probably.
In a new regular feature, we take a look at the day’s rumours involving Manchester United and Arsenal, separating the wheat from the chaff to save you the trouble…
MAN UTD AND ARSENAL STILL OPEN TO HUGE TRANSFER DESPITE DAVID BECKHAM’S MIAMI PURSUIT (THE DAILY EXPRESS)
What a headline. Manchester United. Arsenal. Huge transfer. David Beckham. Miami. Where to start?
After calming down it transpires that Beckham wants Ibrahimovich to join his new Miami MLS franchise as the first marquee signing. But the former England captain’s club won’t enter the league until 2017, and with the Swede’s contract at PSG expiring in the summer, he has a year going spare.
Sadly, there is no actual source for where United and Arsenal’s reported interest stems from – Arsene Wenger is hardly renown for signing ageing luminaries, while is there room at Old Trafford for an ego to rival Louis van Gaal’s?
However here is a link to an Express article regarding Ibrahmovic’s future from earlier this month. The problem – the report makes no mention that Arsenal are in the running, suggests the Red Devils have cooled their interest, and states the MLS is his most likely destination, although strangely with Orlando City rather than Miami.
Confused? You should be.
