Ibra Would Relish Playing With Wazza

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has clearly developed a taste for the hamburger named after him, because he wants beefy Manchester United forward, Wayne Rooney, to join him at PSG.

Before the season began, speculation mounted that “unhappy” Rooney was poised to ditch Old Trafford for the Parc des Princes.

While the idea of Rooney bulldozing his was through refined Paris conjured up images of a bull in china shop, Ibra was delighted.

He admitted that he hoped to play alongside Rooney for the French champions.

As it happened, the burly striker remained at United, where he appears to be rediscovering his top form when he is not injured.

However, Ibra says he would still relish the chance to play with Wazza in Paris.

"When there was talk of Rooney joining us in Paris it was a prospect that excited me," Ibra told the British press, according to Soccernet.

"I think he made it clear in the summer that he wanted a fresh challenge -- and things have not been going so well for Manchester United this season.

"If he still wants to move next summer, or in January, I would urge him to come and play with me in Paris. The only direction this club is going is up."

Rooney began the season with a cloud over his head, having been usurped in the pecking order at United by Robin van Persie last campaign.

But according to Ibra, the Liverpool-born hit-man has the natural ability to shine alongside him.

“I don’t just want to play with great players, I want to play with technically great players -- and that is what he is,” Ibra said of Wazza.

"You can work on the technical side but it is not something you can be taught. You have it or you don't and Rooney does."

Big Swede Zlatan is one of the few players who can speak of himself in the first person and not come across as a prize chop.

And while he loves the idea of forming a strike partnership with Rooney, he has given the England man a warning like only Zlatan can.

"If he did join he would have to get used to the fact that Zlatan scores even better goals than him," he smirked.
