Soccer Props: Bet On Zlatan Ibrahimovic Next Club

Soccer Props: Bet On Zlatan Ibrahimovic Next Club

Where Will Zlatan Ibrahimovic Play in 2017-2018?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is without a club after being released by English giants Manchester United at the end of the 2016-17 campaign despite being their top goalscorer with 28 goals in 46 games.

The 35-year-old Swede suffered a serious knee injury in April and Manchester United decided against offering him an extension to his contract. Despite coming into the twilight of his career, Ibrahimovic still has plenty to offer when it comes to scoring goals and he will be a worthy addition to any squad in the world if someone is prepared to take a chance on him.

Chelsea EPL +2500

Any Chinese Super League club Chinese Super League +900

Zlatan announces retirement - +5000

Bookmakers believe it is most likely that Ibrahimovic will finish his long and illustrious career at a Major League Soccer team in the United States. The MLS is a popular destination for soccer stars coming to the ends of their career and has been a final swansong for such luminaries as Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Thierry Henry in recent years.

Only a handful of the MLS teams could afford Ibrahimovic’s astronomical wages so bear this in mind; perhaps LA Galaxy would be perfect for Ibrahimovic because of the Los Angeles lifestyle and the fact Galaxy never replaced talismanic striker Robbie Keane last season.

Two of Ibrahimovic’s old teams are also up there with the favorites to re-sign the popular Swede. AC Milan, for who Ibrahimovic scored 56 goals in 85 games, and Inter Milan, who “Ibra” scored 66 goals in 117 games, have both being linked with the 35-year-old. Both of the Milan clubs are in a rebuilding process and seem to be looking to the future when it comes to additions to their squads rather than for an immediate fix and Ibrahimovic certainly falls into the second category.

The longest odds available when it comes to betting on who Ibrahimovic’s next club will be are his old side Paris St. Germain, Chelsea and announcing his retirement. Paris already have Edinson Cavani leading their attacking line and Ibrahimovic’s playing style does not fit into how Chelsea’s Antonio Conte likes to set up his teams. It is also very unlikely Ibrahimovic will call time on his playing career just yet; there is definitely one last challenge left in him yet.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Record

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the second most decorated soccer player in the game’s history thank to having won a staggering 33 medals during his career. Among Ibrahimovic’s collection are two Dutch league titles, six Serie A wins, four Ligue Un medals and a Europa League winner’s medal.

The Swede made 110 appearances for the Amsterdam-based team, scoring 48 goals in the process, as he won two Dutch league titles and two Dutch cups.

Since those days, Ibrahimovic has gone on to play in 723 competitive soccer matches and has found the back of the net 420 times, aan amzing record for one of the game’s greats.

It is not only domestically that Ibrahimovic has excelled in his career. After representing Sweden at Under-18 and Under-21 level, Ibrahimovic has 116 caps and 62 goals for his country at senior level. Ibrahimovic made his full international debut in a friendly match against the Faroe Island in 2001 and scored his first goal for Sweden in a 3-0 win over Azerbaijan in his first competitive game.

On September 4, 2014, Ibrahimovic scored his 50th international goal to become the Swedish nation’s all-time leading goalscorer and went on to bag an additional 12 goals before retiring from international soccer after the completion of the 2016 European Championships.
