"Eric is Eric, Zlatan is Zlatan, so I come with a different package, I come with what I'm able to do," Ibrahimovic said in an interview with BT Sport.

"People will remember him for the rest of their lives for what he did here, people will remember me for what I did.

"The only thing he did that I haven't done – yet – is acting. I'm a little bit curious also to be an actor.

"Something like Bourne Identity, something like that, a secret agent. The new James Bond – why not?!"
