The mega-deal would make the Barcelona striker the highest-paid footballer in the world, earning £24m a year.
That dwarfs the salaries of top stars such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka.
If this would ever happen, it would be ridiculous and football will just be ridiculous and there would have to be a new rule for how much a team is allowed to spend in 3years.
Agree, and why do they want him? It seems like they only buy players who is famous, and not thinking about how they fit in the squad and the team play structures. I think they have enough good attackers and don`t need a player like Zlatan.....and about the "£500,000 a week". Ridiculous!! Nobody is worth so much, even not Messi, Kaka, Ronaldo!
Youre worth what you negotiated. The same in every profession :/
Well if he's worth 96M I'm at least worth 1B $
Guys this is THE SUN !!!! They only make made up stories to fill the blank pages
Definate agree exeptinally the sun
If this story is fake or if it isnt... Its a huge amount of money. From my point of view Zlatan is one of the best players. Remember him in Inter, and the first 8 matches in Barcelona before he was injured- scoring in evry singel match! He is worth the best deal ever. I am pretty sure he will win the gold ball this or next year.
i doubt he will get golden ball but he is deadly on 1on1 with goalkeeper.
Man City is desperate to get into the top 4 this season.
I think they should try to get top 4 or 3 or whatever but not just bribe players with money, they have players like adam johnson - adebayor - bellamy - ireland that were amazing players and now there buying other players to replace them so they are ruining there carears to.
