Chelsea and Man City ready to bring Ibrahimovic to the Premier League

16 July 2013 04:38

Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be set to tear-up the Premier League this season, with a move to Chelsea or Manchester City on the cards.

According to the Daily Star today the 31-year-old has fallen out with new Paris St-Germain boss Laurent Blanc over the signing of Edinson Cavani.

The Parisian giants will pay Napoli a massive £54m for the Uruguayan hit-man and hand him a bumper contract and it appears now that Ibra may quit the French giants, with recently appointed manager Laurent Blanc being in the job just three weeks.

Ibrahimovic, who has talked up the Premier League as a possible destination in the past (having almost signed for Arsenal in 2001) hinted that he'd be open to a move to England, but currently takes more than £11m a year in wages at PSG.

With both City and Chelsea bank rolled by owners sporting an almost limitless stream of money, that sort of salary wouldn't be a problem and with both teams on the lookout for strikers Ibra could have his pick of the two rivals.
