Following the news that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be departing Manchester United for MLS side LA Galaxy, we have tipped the legendary Swede to take his talents to the silver screen.
We’re offering odds of 6/4 that the prolific forward will star in a Hollywood film before the end of 2018, while he is also 4/1 to follow in the footsteps of David Beckham by owning an MLS franchise before 2022.
When it comes to actually playing football, Zlatan is 8/1 to top the MLS goalscoring charts in his debut season and is 14/1 to win the MLS Cup.
Having taken the qualifiers off, punters can also get odds of 7/4 on Zlatan walking back into the Swedish national team (and crushing the dreams of an international teammate) by coming out of retirement ahead of the World Cup.
Those less optimistic about his future in the states can gets odds of 16/1 on him returning to Manchester United for a third time in 18 months, while he is 100/1 to have a change of heart and depart LA before even donning the Galaxy jersey.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We’re looking forward to following Zlatan’s American vacation – I mean football career – in the states.
“Given his self-professed title of “lion”, we wouldn’t be surprised if a potential career in film is a roaring success.”
