Goal.com reports that the Swedish striker turned down a lucrative offer to instead seal a move to Manchester United on a free transfer in the summer, according to his agent.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic turned down a staggering offer worth €100 million from an unnamed Chinese club in the summer, according to his agent Mino Raiola.
The Swedish striker moved to Manchester United on a free transfer in the summer after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired.
Ibrahimovic is reported to earn in excess of £200,000-per-week at Old Trafford, but Raiola claims he could have lined his pockets even further had he decided to move to the Far East.
Speaking to Il Giornale, he said: “Ibrahimovic is the best. He turned down €100m net from the Chinese! He doesn’t want more money, he wants to win.
“I’ve been lucky, I’ve always had champions. Zlatan, [Pavel] Nedved, Maxwell and now [Blaise] Matuidi and [Gigio] Donnarumma.
