Speculation is rife over Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s next move after the enigmatic striker confirmed via his Instagram account this morning that he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
The 34-year-old has been linked with clubs across the globe, with Los Angeles Galaxy and AC Milan tipped as destinations, and Manchester United and Chelsea heading the Premier League interest.
And now Zlatan himself has given us an insight into his future plans…
But it is not what you might expect. The Swede has revealed that he will be launching a new project called A-Z (amateur to Zlatan, obviously), which appears to be a sports clothing and training brand.
A statement on the A-Z website reads: “A pair of expensive shoes has never made an athlete. Neither has a t-shirt, a pair of tights or a membership at a fancy gym. No equipment ever has. To go the whole distance from A-Z, from amateur to Zlatan, you have to practice. That’s my philosophy.
“This brand is for all you fighters. Every single one of you who knows that nothing is settled during a game or race, but rather in the 7 million minutes before it even starts. The hours you need to get stronger. Faster. Greater.
“It’s not about the gear. It’s all about you. And the time it takes to get from A-Z.”
Very poetic. Well, with the launch of A-Z and Euro 2016 beginning in the next month, Ibrahimovic will certainly be keeping himself busy while he decides which club is next to be given the gift of Zlatan.
