Zlatan Ibrahimovic has found a new house in Manchester, Proto Group Ltd have reportedly announced.
“We can confirm that we have found a new home for the footballer in Manchester, following the indications given by the club”, the statement reads.
“We struggled a bit at the beginning because Manchester is not Paris, nor Milan. Zlatan couldn’t understand that the architectural style can’t be the same, but in the end he was ‘forced to agree’ a move to an amazing villa with inner swimming pool and a very big garden.”
“Zlatan is a guy with huge sense of humour, we’ve watched the launching event of his sporting cloth brand and his comment on the house was kind of fun too: ‘I will adapt’.”
This comes after a statement from the property group in which they revealed they could not satisfy the 34-year-old.
“We had commissioned from a few weeks to find a villa for Ibrahimovic in a European city of which we are not permitted to disclose the name to avoid speculation.
“For the first time in the history of our company we can not meet the needs of the player. We have found homes for all the big names, from Ronaldo to Messi, to Alves to Maradona in Dubai but with Ibrahimovic we did not succeed.
“We explained that what he seeks in that city does not exist, therefore, he will have to “settle” for what is on the market. What he wanted was similar to a villa with swimming pool next to Milan’s Cathedral or next to the Sagrada Familia, or Big Ben.
“Even if you’re Ibrahimovic, some things you can not have.”
