Manchester United’s number 9 has revealed what he misses the most about his former club, Paris Saint-Germain – and it’s his salary!
Indeed, you read that correctly. The Giant Swede gave a typical Zlatan response when he was asked what he missed most about his former club, by answering that he misses his salary.
Ibrahimović joined his former boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this summer after he refused to renew his contract with PSG.
He has since made a sublime start to his life at Manchester United, already winning one trophy and scoring four goals in as many games for the Red Devils.

However, despite Zlatan’s blistering start to the season, he revealed to SFR the one thing that he misses about his previous club.
He stated: “What I miss in Paris? My salary, that’s what I miss.
“I watch PSG matches when I have the time because I still have many things to do other than my work.
“But this year, I think they have a very strong team. They bought new players and their philosophy is the same: they want to win everything. Anyway, it’s not my problem. I have my own problems.”
Zlatan is well known for his quick and tenacious responses to the press – one of the many positives about Zlatan that Manchester United fans will be looking forward to during the season.
The 34-year-old signed a one-year contract with Manchester United, but the contract can be extended depending on his performances this season.
He earns £220,000-a-week – along the same lines as club captain Wayne Rooney and recent record signing Paul Pogba. So with just under £10 million a year, the Giant Swede shouldn’t be too unhappy.
Zlatan will most probably lead United’s front line during this weekend’s Manchester Derby, although 18-year-old Marcus Rashford is also in contention for starting the match. It’s going to be a tricky one for Jose this weekend!
