Ibrahimovic to become a cartoon character

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to be brought to life as the main protagonist in a series of cartoon strips focused on Paris Saint-Germain.

From the imaginations of writer Arnaud Ramsay and illustrator Philippe Bercovici, 'Paris is well worth a sheikh. When Qatar buys football' will be published next Thursday, and amusingly recounts the behind-the-scenes story of the new-look, mega-rich PSG.

Ibrahimovic, 31, plays a central role, but club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sporting director Leonardo do not escape ridicule in a book which also has Newcastle United's Hatem ben Arfa returning to play for his hometown club, being coached by current Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

"It took me four months working full-time. It's common to see comics based on myths, and PSG hope to become a myth. It's logical to look at that. Satirising powerful people has always been a driving force for artists," Bercovici said.

A further two books are planned based on PSG's charismatic Swedish striker. 'Thus Spoke Zlatan' will be a dictionary of imaginary quotes written by Pat Perna and illustrated by Bercovici, who will also provide the artwork for 'In Zlatan's Skin'.

"Ibrahimovic will be a character who doesn't accept debate and goes mad at the slightest problem. We're going to have fun with PSG," said Bercovici, who has already enjoyed himself in exaggerating the Sweden international's prominent facial features.

"He's not only got a big nose. He has a peculiar face with a pointy chin and a big head. I've done a caricature of a player who's already a caricature."
