But it is the Zinedine Zidane factor that is drawing him most to the Bernabeu, and has reportedly said it would be his ‘dream’ to work with the Frenchman.
According to OKDiario.com‘s director Eduardo Inda, Ibrahimovic has contacted the Los Blancos boss through a friend.
He said: “Ibrahimovic has offered himself to Zidane – not to Real Madrid, but Zidane.
“It would be the dream of Real Madrid, the dream of Real Madrid and dream of the player himself.
“This year he’s got 30 goals, he is an absolute genius, one of the best that football has.
“It has been offered through a friend of Zidane and has said he wants to fulfil his dream of playing for Real Madrid.”
It will be a move that won’t go down well with former club Barcelona, with Zlatan having played for Madrid’s fierce rivals between 2009 and 2011.
