'Incredibly intelligent' Ibrahimovic will become a billionaire - Raiola

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's off-the-field investments and "incredible" intelligence will make him a billionaire, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Sweden international has enjoyed a glittering career to date, winning league titles in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, while he also won the Europa League and the EFL Cup at Manchester United.

Raiola boasts an array of stars in his client list, including Mario Balotelli, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.

But the Italian super-agent, who earned a staggering €27 million from Pogba's £89m (€105m) transfer to Old Trafford from Juventus, insists that Ibrahimovic has the business nous to outstrip their wealth.

"Zlatan’s the cleverest of them all – and the richest," Raiola, who speaks with Ibrahimovic four times a day, told Dutch magazine Quote .

"He has it within himself to be worth £1bn. He’s incredibly intelligent and active in the market. I only have to tell him something once.

"Ibra is invested in gaming, tech start-ups and diamonds. He’s already sold big shares to hedge funds which no-one knows about. He’s earning far more away from football then he does in it."
