Spurs legend says former rivals Arsenal, Chelsea best teams to land megastar free agent

Posted by

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic just weeks away from becoming arguably the biggest free agent in the history of sports, everyone has an opinion as to where the Swedish scoring machine will go to play in 2016. Former Tottenham Hotspur legend and England manager Glenn Hoddle has an idea as to which teams would be the best fit and wasn’t afraid to name his former London rivals as top destinations.

In a column for The Daily Mail, Hoddle wrote that he believes Arsenal or Chelsea would likely be the best fit for the 34-year-old PSG megastar. However, he also added that he had his doubts that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger would be willing to spend the million required to bring Zlatan to the Emirates.

‘Even though Zlatan Ibrahimovic did not fare too well against Manchester City on Tuesday, I would still love to see him come to the Premier League next season,’ said the former England boss.

‘You can’t see Arsene Wenger spending the millions of pounds required in wages to bring a 34-year-old to the Emirates.

‘But you couldn’t argue with the fact he would improve Arsenal. Likewise Chelsea.’

Zlatan has a career-best 32 league goals and 41 total goals this season for PSG, but has announced that this year will be his last in Paris (unless the Eiffel Tower is replaced with a statue of him).
