Verratti calls on Ibrahimovic to join Pescara
The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder did his best to urge his former team-mate to join the newly promoted Serie A outfit, though it is unlikely his calls will be answered
Despite his participation in Euro 2016 having come to an end, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future remains unknown as reports of a move to Manchester United intensify.
But one of his former Paris Saint-Germain teammates is not willing to let him move to the Old Trafford outfit without first considering one final option.
PSG midfielder Marco Verratti took to Instagram in a bid to convince Ibra to join newly-promoted Serie A side Pescara by photoshopping the Swede onto the team’s blue and white kit.

The Italy international – who began his career with Pescara before moving to the French capital in 2012 – accompanied the image with the caption “We are waiting with open arms @iamzlatanibrahimovic my friend.”
Whether it will be enough to force a last minute change of heart from Zlatan remains to be seen, but it was certainly an excellent attempt to pull off what would be one of the biggest transfer coups of all time.
