10 Things You Didn't Know About Zlatan Ibrahimović

Dare to Zlatan?

Zlatan is an enigma. His career started off in a bit of controversy. Arsene Wenger rejected the chance to sign him for Arsenal citing he wasn't good enough, even after Sweden's all time record scorer trained with the club. Zlatan would return to Sweden with Malmo, scoring 16 goals in 40 games before a move to Ajax. He would have the eyes of Europe's big boys on him in Holland as he scored 35 goals in 74 league appearances for de Godenzonen. €16 million took him to Juventus as he would start a very unsettled period in his career. He would spend two years at Juve before moving to their rivals Inter Milan. Three years later in 2009, he signed a 5-year contract at Barcelona for €46 million plus Samuel Eto'o. Zlatan would have a €250 million release clause placed on his head but would leave for AC Milan just over a year after signing. His loan move at the San Siro was made permanent soon after before he relocated to Paris in the summer of 2012. Paris Saint Germain looks to be the club where Ibra will retire from the game. At 33 he still has plenty to offer and has currently notched 64 league goals in 76 league games.
