Zlatan would not play for ‘pompous ass’ Van Gaal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic would “not walk through the door” at Manchester United while Louis van Gaal is in charge, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

They quote a friend of the Swede’s very clearly saying that he would not consider a move to United when he leaves PSG this summer while the Dutchman is in charge.

Ibrahimovic referred to Van Gaal as ‘a pompous ass’ in his I Am Zlatan book, while saying last year: “The way he is working is not the way I work.”

He has been strongly linked with a move to United this summer, with some reports suggesting that United would be willing to spend £24m over two years on the Swede’s wages.

His agent Mino Raiola said this week: “Zlatan is motivated and all clubs who offer him a contract know that. He doesn’t need to continue for financial reasons, he wants to prove himself at the highest level, just as he has the other years when people thought he was too old.

“I’m not saying the financial aspect is not important at all, but his motivation is not money. If you are the best, you must be paid as the best.”

It is thought that Ibrahimovic would be very keen to join United if they appointed his old Inter manager Jose Mourinho.
