He’s graced the Nou Camp, San Siro and Stadio delle Alpi - but could Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s next home be Queensgate?

The maverick PSG striker’s sparked wild speculation over his future by announcing his next move will be a “very big surprise”.

Manchester United are thought to be leading the race to sign the big Swede - but they could face competition from Scarborough Athletic.

The club tweeted that it was “not prepared to comment” over, well, nonexistent rumours that the Ballon D’Or nominee was considering leaving Paris for the Yorkshire Coast.

But if Scarborough Athletic did somehow convince the former Barcelona forward to swap the Champions League for England’s eighth tier, one source close to the club feels he would be an instant fan favourite.

“It’s no secret we’ve struggled to get crowds in recently, so if anybody could guarantee a big turnout on a wet Tuesday night against Glossop North End, it would be Zlatan,” they said.

“A few opponents might fancy making a name for themselves by sticking the boot in, but apparently he’s a taekwondo black belt so I’m sure he’d love it at this level.

“And he’s right, if he did come to Scarborough would be a very, very big surprise.”
