Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio claims Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer to Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

His website claims Spurs are keen on the free agent, and are keen to beat Manchester United to his signature.

Ibrahimovic is leaving Paris Saint-Germain after four title winning seasons at the club, and scored 50 goals in all competitions this past season at the age of 35.

The report claims Tottenham's proposal has 'not convinced the player', and he is weighing up multiple offers, with United's believed to be the strongest due to the temptation to link up with his former Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho.

Spurs would have to smash their wage barrier to sign Zlatan, who ESPN claim wants more than £200,000 per week.

As a free agent with lucrative offers from American and China also on the table, Zlatan holds the cards in this scenario.

The trump card Tottenham can offer Ibrahimovic over Manchester United is the chance to play in the Champions League next season instead of the Europa League, with the Red Devils only finishing in fifth.
