It’s that time of year: the temperature is hotter, the days are longer, and players are heading for the exit and onto new clubs. Take a look at which Europe-based stars might make the leap to the states this summer.
The good news is this move makes Manchester United once again much easier to hate. That's right, Zlatan is gone, banished from Manchester United after 42 appearances, 28 goals and one horrible knee injury.
Obviously Zlatan is going to come back. He is Zlatan, after all. The question is where, and that is a question for another day. Today, we must wrap our heads around the fact that we actually kind of liked Manchester United for a bit there, when they had Zlatan and Pogba doing Zlatan things and Pogba things.
Social media is now the most powerful tool for marketing products and services. For celebrities and world-class athletes, social media plays an important role in engaging with fans. As social media becomes more and more commercially influential, it only makes sense that the more followers they get, the more income they'll receive.
Winning trophies is something every world footballer wants. It is a pride to contribute to your team’s success. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the world’s most successful footballers in the modern era. However, neither is the world’s most decorated player when it comes to footballers with the most trophies (based on the numbers of trophies won for their teams, not individual honors). In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't even make this list, with only 22 team trophies.

Scientist: sir, the unit has broken down. A failure of the knee joint, apparently
Boss guy: Goddammit the warranty just expired
Other scientist: well, at least this will give us a chance to improve the unit
Zlatan: I am right here, and I can hear you. I am Zlatan, and I am already as close to perfect as can possibly exist
Scientist: well at least the hearing module still works
Other scientist: and the confidence module
Zlatan: Everything works I am Zlatan
Less than a week after suffering a torn ACL and possible damage to his PCL, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is scheduled to visit Dr. Freddie Fu at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Fu is well known for pioneering the double bundle technique to repair ACL tears, the method that most effectively restores natural knee movement patterns.
Zlatan is injured. We didn't know Zlatan could get injured. We thought he was impervious to harm. We thought he was immortal. We were wrong. Zlatan is injured.
Zlatan is injured so badly it's feared his career could be over. One person, at least, doesn't think Zlatan is anywhere near the finish line. That person is Zlatan.
“I don’t know how long I have left,” Zlatan Ibrahimovic told BT Sport prior to Manchester United’s second leg match against Anderlecht. “Rashford, Lingard have long careers in front of them. I was there 15 years ago, I don’t know how long I have left.” If the latest reports are confirmed, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has suffered a devastating knee injury that could spell the end of the 35-year-old’s career.
