” Liberté, égalité, fraternité” or in this case more greenbacks for Zlatan
Gazzetta Dello Sport is reporting that the deal is in the bag and the Swede is expected to arrive in Paris for a medical tomorrow after days of wrangling over personal terms. Ibrahimovic is expected to earn €12m euros annually over a three year contract. The blockbuster trade also sees Thiago Motta depart for the Parc Des Princes with AC Milan expected to receive €65m for both players.
Ibra’s departure will pave the way for Milan’s pursuit of Carlos Tevez and possibly Edin Dzeko. However, City’s manager Roberto Mancini has said he’s going to hang onto them probably in an effort to extricate as much out of Milan when negotiations begin or more specifically in Tevez’s case, unfinished business concludes.
