Not even two weeks have passed since Zlatan Ibrahimovich joined Paris Saint-Germain, but that's no matter.
Zlatan never stops being Zlatan.
Together, the two cost €65 million (Daily Telegraph), a staggering figure even for a club of PSG's spending stature. And together, they represent the strongest statement of intent in the nouveau-riche club's new French Revolution.
Of course, it's not only PSG making statements. True to form, Ibrahimovic has continued making the kind of headline-grabbing statements he's come to be known for through the years.
Not long after joining PSG, Ibra announced that his new club is better than his old club. Never mind that the very loss of himself and Thiago Silva probably had something to do with that.
Actually, that's the kind of logic that makes Zlatan's world go round.
When asked by reporters if les Parisiens are superior to the Rossoneri, Ibrahimovic responded: "Yes." He then added: "Because they [Milan] lost their two best players," when asked why.
In addition to Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, PSG's high-priced revolution also includes the signing of Argentine attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli. But even with three big-money and big-name signings to bolster the squad, Ibrahimovic has been quoted as saying PSG are not yet part of Europe's elite.
From Yahoo! Sports:
"can't be compared with . We still have a lot of work to do to become like them. We are a team with a lot of new faces and are still under construction," Ibrahimovic said. "We are a new team with a project that's being put in place. Like I've said before, PSG are the future."
PSG are a club for the future, but with Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Lavezzi joining an already talented squad, the Parisians have more than enough talent to be a force in France and Europe next season.
Whatever else happens along the way, expect to see more of Zlatan being Zlatan.
