Video: Zlatan jokingly promises Jurgen Klopp he'd join Dortmund for free

Posted by Chris Wright

The twin goliaths of modern football-based meme-ery, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jurgen Klopp, were all smiles when cameras caught the pair jollily schmoozing with one another in the media room at Monday night's Ballon d'Or awards gala in Zurich, with Zlatan haphazardly dropping in a sort-of throw-away comment and asking Klopp when he was going to finally sign him for Dortmund.

Klopp then openly mused that he wouldn't be able to afford Ibrahimovic's transfer fee without selling his entire first team, to which the PSG striker quickly (maybe a little too quickly!) quipping that he'd be more than willing to join Dortmund on a free transfer.


Whether it be a big ol' joke or not, this probably isn't going to go down overly well in the Qatar Investment Authority's boardroom.
