fifa15guide : Zlatan Ibrahimovic Praises Messi Over Ronaldo [Interview]

Paris Saint Germain’s(PSG) world renowned striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, had a lot to say during his interview with Sports Illustrated. While PSG is currently in the United competing in the International Champion Cup, Ibrahimovic decided to talk about his future with PSG while comparing himself to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The interview started off by talking about the infamous fight between Ibrahimovic and former teammate Onyewu. The Swedish international answered by stating sometimes you have to fight be friends, while laughing.

In the following questions Ibrahimovic cleared up the rumors about moving to the Premier League to play under Louis Van Gaal, with Manchester United. However Ibrahimovic made it known that his relationship with Van Gaal is not so great and that he will not be leaving PSG before his contract is over, which ends next year.

Ibrahimovic spoke about his World hunger campaign which was very successful, and also made it known that he did not do the campaign for any recognition but solely for the purpose of stopping world hunger.

Before the interview ended, Ibrahimovic, gave his perspective on Ronaldo and Messi and it was clear to see that Messi was on a higher pedestal to the Swedish star.

fifa15guide : PSG Looks to Sign Angel Di Maria

According to the Guardian, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have  made an offer for winger Ángel Di María .€40m (£28.5m) to remove him from English giants, Manchester United.

United paid £59.7m to Real Madrid  for Di Maria last year which is less than half  of what PSG is offering  for the Argentine star. However United’s  vice- chairman, Ed Woodward,  is not interested in the offer and is urging PSG to up their bid.

Di Mari made his name at Real Madrid as a superstar and was hoping to do so in the Premier League. Unfortunately, Di Maria struggled to gel with Manchester Untied during his debut year.

Paris Saint-Germain boss, Laurent Blanc, wants to sign the 27-year-old Argentine star, but insists a deal is far from being complete.

“There is a good possibility [he could sign] but there is nothing official,”  said Blanc.

“There is an anticipation he is going to come to the US but as to which jersey he is going to wear, we don’t know yet.”

“If he does make a change hopefully it will be for Paris Saint-Germain. Right now we have to wait because there are two big clubs out there in discussion.”

Di Maria scored 4 goals accompanied by 11 assists for Manchester United last season.

 

fifa15guide : Manchester United Is Working Hard To Sign Ibrahimovic

Manchester United (ManUtd)  is spending quite a bit during this transfer window to secure some trophies in the 2015/16 season. The English juggernaut recently signed German superstar, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and is now looking to sign top striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Zlatan-Ibrahimovic-5

ManUtd has been searching the market for a fierce striker who will  bring back the attacking reputation of the club. ManUtd’s manager, Louis van Gaal, is eager to get Ibrahimovic to the Old Trafford , which seems to be very possible.

When Ibrahimovic was  asked about possibly moving to England this summer, the PSG forward replied:

 

“Should I stay in Paris? My future is in the hands of (agent) Mino Raiola.”

According to talkSPORT the Swedish striker is a target for Louis van Gaal and a move to the Premier League could be likely with ManUtd short on striker options.

Robin van Persie is no longer at the Old Trafford  and Radamel Falcao is on  loan with rival club, Chelsea, so signing a great striker is critical for the Premier League club.

Ibrahimovic might be 33 year of age but he is fully capable of finding the back of the net. The PSG hitman  scored 30 goals last season for the French champions and 41 goals the season before.
