Well, that is one way make a tempting offer!
Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has a momentumental decision to make this summer as to where he would ply his trade next season- has just received an offer that, at least for sheer presumptuousness, blows every other one out of the water.
German fourth division side Ro-Weiss Oberhausen has come up with the monster offer to entice the towering Swede to their small club. Oberhausen, in the offer posted on the club’s website, has promised to establish a monarchy in the town and make Zlatan king, if he so chooses.
That is not all. The club promises a local beer would be renamed in his honour, IbrahimovicPilsnener; the club would replace their usual servings with Swedish sausages, and the club promises a new stand that would be fitted with furniture from Swedish furniture giants, IKEA.
So basically, the entire town would be Zlatanised, if he takes them up on their offer.
Ibrahimovic has currently not revealed where he would be playing next, after leaving French giants Paris Saint-Germain this season. He presumably has offers from Manchester United, AC Milan and the Los Angeles Galaxy in the US, but is taking his sweet time making a decision.
Oberhausen President Hajo Sommers told German TV on Thursday that the entire thing was just the idea of a joke of their media relations officer.
“Our media relations officer apparently has nothing better to do on a Wednesday night,” RWO’s president Hajo Sommers told German broadcaster Sport1 on Thursday.
“He thought that, given the whole current transfer madness, an announcement like this would go down well, so he knocked one out.
“The young man has too much free time, but I think it’s great.”
Sommers, though, wouldn’t mind if Zlatan takes them up on their offer.
“That would be a whole new experience for Ibrahimovic,” he added.
“If he wants to expand his horizons, let him come, we would pick him up. We could show Ibrahimovic all there is to see in Oberhausen.
“In a football province, like Oberhausen, there are a few things which other places wouldn’t have. Maybe we’re on his list of 50 things which a footballer hasn’t done yet.”
Over to you, Ibra Cadabra.
