IBRAHIMOVIC WANTS TO FOLLOW ANCELOTTI AT REAL MADRID ?

It was mentioned here a couple of weeks back, that Paris St Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic wished to follow his ex-Coach Carlo Ancelotti & had sent a message via "third persons" that he would be willing to leave PSG for Real Madrid. The Swede is said to have been "offended" with the signing of another number 9 in the player Cavani & wishes to find the exit door.

Spanish Sports paper "AS" picks up today the news that Ibrahimovic wishes to join Real Madrid. He knows the Club is looking for a Number 9 & that he personally would be able to look for his ultimate Football goal, the Champions League title, under Coach Ancelotti. To help,  it is said that Ibrahimovic would accept to reduce his 14M€ per season salary to fit into the Real Madrid scheme. At his 31 years of age, the PSG forward sees this "train" as his last real big opportunity.

The big obstacle is his character. The player has earned himself a profile of "difficult player" & "star" in all the Clubs he has been. This may now be the pay back moment. Although it is said that Carlo Ancelotti does not see a problem with his possible incorporation & that the Italian Coach has been able to "tame the Beast" & bring out the best of forward with plenty of goals in France.

Today the same media source publish that the Sergio Aguero option is still open. The Manchester City Argentine forward has never totally been discarded at the Spanish Club & would be better placed than Ibrahimovic if possible.

Either way, at this point, there are numerous factors in play. One is Gonzalo Higuian, Real Madrid ask for 40M€ to help finance signing operations & at this moment the only said offer that exists for the player is 30M€ from Italian Club Napoles. Also there is the Gareth Bale desires of Real Madrid, at this point in a stalemate situation but could take-off again at any moment. The signing of Bale by Madrid could cost anything from 80-100M€, Bale would be a priority & would shut the door at other said signings. 

Interesting weeks ahead, stay tuned!
