Talk about an unrealistic transfer rumour.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has warned West Ham fan and popular TV host James Corden that the Hammers couldn’t afford him.
The former Manchester United appeared as a guest on Corden’s The Late Late Show and a potential transfer to West Ham was discussed before the show went on air.

He was also asked to pull off some stunts on the show, such as opening a jar of pickles, ‘flossing’ and talking with a mouth full of marshmallows.
It comes as no surprise that Ibrahimovic has become a big hit in the United States. He recently featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as a surprise guest along with the twelve young boys who were trapped in a cave based in Thailand back in June, as per The Irish Times.
The young team, representing Wild Boars Football Club, were pictured on the sofa with Ellen and their hero Ibrahimovic.

They each received a shirt with Ibrahimovic’s name on the back and were invited to a training session with LA Galaxy.
