Because less players equal more space to pass and move


Manchester United are hoping to close in on outgoing PSG star striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic is expected to make a decision about his future before the Euros with Manchester United, LA Galaxy and Arsenal among the clubs interested.

The Swede centre forward has had an impressive four seasons with the French outfit, who have won the French Ligue 1 all though Ibrahimovic’s stay. Despite only staying four seasons at the top club, Ibrahimovic broke the record and established himself as the top goal scorer.

This forced Graeme Souness to refer to the tall striker as the needed catalyst for the Red Devils. “They need something to light a fire if they are not going to be in the Champions League,” Souness.

WHilst admitting that nothing is quite as exciting as when you play Lord of the Rings pokies at Pokies Palace, Souness reckons Ibra would be the man to get the fans back to being entertained at Old Trafford.

“I can go back to George Best and Wille Morgan on the wings to David Beckham and Ryan Giggs. These people got you on the edge of your seat and United have not been that for a couple of years.

“Ibrahimovic would give you that. He’d get you on the edge of your seat and would that stadium and that pressure overawe him? Not at all.

“I think he could be the catalyst for United to get back to somewhere where you’re watching them play the kind of football that you associate with Manchester United - the football that got you on the edge of your seat.

“Pay him what he wants, which would be a shed load of money and you’d certainly get one great year out of him and you might even get two great years out of him,” he added.

The centre forward will likely decide on the next action before the Euro campaign starting early next month, even though the club and he have announced publicly that he would be leaving this summer.
