Swedish football superstar, Zlatan sell house in Malmö and emigrate

Tuesday, 20 March 2012
Even wealthy Swedish star such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic have decided to leave Sweden. He is selling his house in his home town of Malmö and will move aborad and set up base some where else.
"The reason for selling is that we have decided to continue to live abroad, even after my careers," said the Swedish Milan star in a statement from his Swedish brand agency - The perfect brands.

“That is correct. They spend as little time there. It is entirely accurate,” says Victoria Egler of The perfect brands to Swedish news agency, TT. She adds that “there is not much more to say than that.”

Malmö's tourism director Johan Hermansson told TT that the city is proud of Ibrahimovic and his connection to Malmö. His house at Ribersborg in Malmö has encouraged many to visit, but has obviously not been an official tourist destination.

“I find it hard to say anything about what impact it may have been that he now is selling it,” says Johan Hermansson.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and partner Helena Seger bought the villa for Skr30 million in September 2007. The Swede has previously said to be hesitant to play in the headlines after international careers and the future house sales suggest that it is not going to happen.

Reportedly costing housing Skr30 million - and has since been renovated for very large sums. The question is what the house can bring in a sale.

“It's an impossible question, says Mathias Blomberg, office manager of brokerage firm Skeppsholmen Sotheby's International Realty in Malmo.

It is not very clears as to why Zlatan had decided to move abroad but this may be speculated as to that many Swedes are really emigrating from Sweden right now. Although the Swedish economy looks great, many people still find that Sweden is not really a great place to live. Boredom is a leading factor, plus the fact that immigrants do not really find Sweden as home as one could say in a place like the UK.
