One of Europe's biggest clubs have revealed they decided against signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as his demands were 'god-like'.
Ibrahimovic has plied his tried in the Dutch Eredivisie, Serie A, Ligue 1, Premier League and Major League soccer over his illustrious career.
The 39-year-old, however, has not tasted Bundesliga football but that could've been different if his demands were not big according to Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.
"He's a great player, but his demands were also god-like," Hoeness told RTL, as per the Daily Mail.
"We were interested once, but didn't even get to the main course."
There was a similar issue 20 years ago when Bayern had the chance to sign the Swedish striker when he was still with Malmo FF.
"We had contact with (former sports director of Malmo FF) Hasse Borg,' Bjorn Andersson told Swedish football website Fotbollskanalen.
"But Bayern said no as it was too much money for a youth player.
"It was the right decision. Bayern have won more titles than Ajax and Juventus. That counts in the end. They did not do anything wrong.
"Also, for Zlatan, the change to the Netherlands was correct. Who knows whether the German mentality would have suited him at all."
