Zlatan Ibrahimovic interested in being the next James Bond

Daniel Craig and Matt Damon could have company in Hollywood with the United star keen to play a secret agent like 'Bourne' or 'Bond'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been heavily linked with swapping Manchester United for Los Angeles Galaxy, and it seems a move to Hollywood is on his mind.

However, Ibrahimovic may well be more interested in following in United icon Eric Cantona's footsteps by swapping football for acting, rather than moving to MLS.


The 35-year-old lightheartedly suggested he has what it takes to challenge the likes of Matt Damon – star of the Bourne film series – and Daniel Craig – the latest actor to play James Bond – for a place on the silver screen.


"Eric is Eric, Zlatan is Zlatan, so I come with a different package, I come with what I'm able to do," Ibrahimovic said in an interview with BT Sport.

"People will remember him for the rest of their lives for what he did here, people will remember me for what I did.


"The only thing he did that I haven't done – yet – is acting. I'm a little bit curious also to be an actor.

"Something like Bourne Identity, something like that, a secret agent. The new James Bond – why not?!"
