Ibrahimovic reveals 'Zlatan: The Movie' could be coming very soon

The Paris St Germain striker has revealed that a film focusing on his feats as a player could soon be heading to cinemas.

Footballers are increasingly becoming a popular subject for filmmakers, with the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo the focus of their own feature films in recent times

UK viewers were even treated to a special documentary focusing on England's all-time top goalscorer Wayne Rooney this week, with the Manchester United striker letting the cameras into his home.

With all of that it mind, it would seem only natural that Sweden’s own all-time top scorer and all-round football icon, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, would get his own film.

And while fans have had to wait a fair amount of time to see a film focusing on the 34-year-old’s exploits on the pitch, the good news is that one may be coming to a cinema near you very soon.

According to a report from Swedish news source Aftonbladet, Ibrahimovic has confirmed that discussions over a potential film have already started.

“We're negotiating. We'll see. It would have been fun if we could put something out. It's not just to say 'I want' and someone says 'we can do it',” he told reporters.

Whether it takes the form of a documentary or Hollywood production remains to be seen but for now, we are very excited.

And let's hope the director remembers one thing: Zlatan doesn't do auditions.
