Find out more below.

Zlatan’s not happy

Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given EA/FIFA 21 a public dressing down on Twitter.

The AC Milan striker appears to be disgruntled that he is being used as a marketing tool for the game without his permission.

DEAL REACHED! EA signed an exclusive deal with AC Milan this season

EA signed an exclusive deal with both Inter and AC Milan ahead of FIFA 21 in response to Konami signing Juventus and Roma to rival game PES.

Whatever the situation is at Milan, it looks like someone forgot to tell Zlatan.

What happens next?

39-year-old Ibrahimovic is clearly unhappy that EA are profiting from his likeness in the game.

His tweet states “for sure I never allowed FIFAcom or Fifpro to make money using me.

Somebody is making profit on my name and face without any agreement all these years. Time to investigate.”

Spurs winger Gareth Bale also weighed in, appearing confused with the situation too.

The Welshman asked “what is FIFPro?” in response to Zlatan’s tweet, followed by the hashtag ‘Time to Investigate’.

Will they now be pulled from the game? Could this potentially jeopardise EA’s multi-year deal with Milan? We will have to wait and see.
