Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is torn after receiving a request to meet a dying child in Bosnia.
The eight-year-old, named Hajrudin Kamenjas, reportedly has been given less than a month to live by doctors as he fights leukaemia, and his wish is to meet the Swedish striker, whose father is Bosnian.
There were reports that after the striker had bagged a brace in PSG's 3-0 victory over Benfica he boarded a flight to Sarajevo to meet the child—but Eurosport reported a PSG press officer denying that he had done so.
Quoting from Aftonbladet newspaper, Eurosport reported Ibrahimovic as saying:
I get these type of requests every week.
The only difference now is that they have used media.
We'll see what I can do. I always try to make everyone happy. We'll see what I can do for him. It's sad. When everybody is happy I am happy.
The striker, 32, is straight back into action at Marseille in a huge Ligue 1 game at the weekend. Shortly after he will be on duty for the Sweden national side in crunch World Cup qualifiers against Germany and Austria.
