Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made a ridiculously outrageous demand if he’s to stay at PSG


Is there a less competitive domestic football competition than France’s Ligue 1?

Giving a Gallic shrug of the shoulders? Then you’re probably exerting the same amount of energy Paris Saint Germain needed to make history this weekend, running out 9-0 winners at Troyes and wrapping up the title in mid-March. Ridiculous.

With eight left games to play, boasting 25 points more than second placed Monaco, a goal difference of 62 (more than the goal differences for the rest of the top 10 sides added together) and only one loss in the French championship this entire campaign, the one downside for Laurent Blanc’s serial winners is that they’re in danger of making the rest of the league look utterly pointless.

It might also explain why star striker Zlatan Ibrahimović, who scored four vs Troyes, including a sensational nine minute hat-trick, wants out. Having already spoken of his eagerness to leave in the summer and finish his stellar career off somewhere else, fans have probably already resigned themselves to his departure. 

However, after talking to reporters following the recent game, the Swede revealed one action that would convince him to stay at Parc des Princes….

Replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of himself.


Talk about tall orders.

Even for a man known for the exhuberant - audacious goals, booting teammates in the backside and generally speaking about himself in the third person – it’s a lofty wish. Quite why he doesn’t believe both landmarks couldn’t exist in the same city is unclear, but then perhaps they’d need room for his head.

Do city officials dare to Zlatan?
