Zlatan Ibrahimovich more commonly referred to as Zlatan is one of the most talented and equally controversial figures currently playing the game. He has played the game across the entire continent of Europe from Italy (Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan), France (PSG), England (Manchester United), Spain (Barcelona) and has dominated in every single club.
Zlatan is known for his controversial (and funny) statements just as well as he is known for his footballing prowess. 
Here are a few of his most famous quotes:
“When you buy me, you are buying a Ferrari. If you drive a Ferrari you put premium petrol in the tank, you hit the motorway and you step on the gas. Guardiola filled up with diesel and took a spin in the countryside. He should have bought a Fiat.” –  Don’t waste Zlatan.
“I don’t believe they can change the Eiffel Tower for my statue, even the people behind the club. But if they can, I will stay here — I promise you.” – PSG were that close to keeping him.
“A World Cup without me is nothing to watch, so it is not worth waiting for the World Cup.” – When Portugal knocked Sweden out in the play-offs.
“What do you mean, ‘present?’ She got Zlatan.” – When asked what he got his wife for Valentine’s day.
"[Jose] Mourinho is Guardiola's opposite. If Mourinho brightens up the room, Guardiola pulls down the curtains and I guessed that Guardiola now tried to measure himself with him."
"What [John] Carew does with a football, I can do with an orange." - In response to Carew's suggestions that Ibrahimovic's flicks and tricks were "pointless."
"Zlatan doesn't do auditions." - When Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger offered the then-teenaged Ibrahimovic a trial.
"It's true I don't know much about the players here, but they definitely know who I am." - On his move to Ligue 1 in 2012.
"We were looking through his playlist in the dressing room -- there was lots of Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers and Selena Gomez. It is nice to know that even David Beckham doesn't have good taste in everything."
"It felt like I had 11 babies around me." - On Chelsea players' response to his red card in the 2015 Champions League quarterfinals.
"Then Guardiola started his philosopher thing. I was barely listening. Why would I? It was advanced bull**** about blood, sweat and tears, that kind of stuff."
"I came like a king, left like a legend." - Zlatan on his PSG departure.
