In last week Zlatan Ibrahimovic commented about that his future in Paris Saint-Germain is uncertain. Now there are new rumors revealing new details of a return to the Italian champions Juventus.
– A lot can happen. I was not set in Paris a year ago, but was set to go to the USA with Milan but instead Paris came into the picture, said Zlatan then.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Helena Seger does not feel comfortable in Paris – and wants to leave the French capital. A decision according to data based on security for the family and the social situation is more fitting in Italy. One example is that Zlatan and Helenas bodyguard protection was much betterin Italy than in Paris.
– Since I arrived here, it has been very stressful, people chasing me with mopeds, Zlatan said earlier in the spring in an interview with CNN.
To return to Italy as he often referred to as a “second home” Zlatan must be willing to fix the biggest problem for a move, the salary. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is willing to reduce his annual salary from 12 million to 6 million – a sum that touches Juventus maximum ceiling of wages.
Zlatan has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain for further two years but Paris SGs club owners are not concerned about a possible move of Zlatan. They do not believe in the idea that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reduce his salary for social reasons, in a new club, or any club is open to pay as high a salary as in PSG.
There has also been reports that if Zlatan would leave there would be a “goodbye bonus” of between 4.5 and 6 million from Paris Saint-Germain as may be appropriate. This is paid in lieu of the more than 200 million crowns Zlatan had earned during their two remaining years of his contract. This would in practice mean that Zlatan Ibrahimovic earn almost as much as he did in PSG if Juventus offer him about 7 million in annual salary.
Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, ex-president of Juventus during Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s time in Turin, knows what it takes for a move to become a reality:
– The views of Juventus has been that they will not be able to afford Zlatan Ibrahimovic unless he lowers wages. Money is a problem in Italy, even in football clubs, said Gigli.
