The Most Fearless Man In Soccer Is Facing The Biggest Decision Of His Career

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says what he feels all of the time, and a lot of the time that involves letting someone know that he is better than them. 

When asked who he thought was the best looking woman in the world, he responded, “I don’t know, but when I find her I will date her.”

Louis Van Gaal Has Made It Clear That United Could Buy A Striker

There is a very real possibility that Manchester United could sign a striker, according to Louis van Gaal.
