PSG superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged Manchester United star Wayne Rooney to join him at the French side.
Wayne Rooney was heavily linked to PSG earlier in the summer after his reported transfer request, but Edinson Cavani joined the French Champions instead.
Ibra was quoted in the sun saying “When there was talk of Rooney joining us in Paris it was a prospect that excited me,”
“I think he made it clear in the summer that he wanted a fresh challenge – and things have not been going so well for Manchester United this season.
“If he still wants to move next summer, or in January, I would urge him to come and play with me in Paris. The only direction this club is going is up.”
However, Rooney may not be so positive about joining a club where a first team place would be even more difficult to achieve.
“If he did join he would have to get used to the fact that Zlatan scores even better goals than him,” added Ibrahimovic, in classic Ibrahimovic style.
“But I don’t just want to play with great players, I want to play with technically great players – and that is what he is.
“You can work on the technical side but it is not something you can be taught. You have it or you don’t and Rooney does.”
