Hertha Berlin won't meet Zlatan Ibrahimovic's salary demands, but they promise him lots of love.

Hertha Berlin is nothing if not honest and ambitious. 

The Bundesliga side made its "pitch" to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is soon to be out of contract and announced he will not be returning to Paris Saint-Germain on Friday. Given that he's the third highest-paid player in the world, according to Forbes, and is reportedly seeking £300,000 per week, this is quite the pie-in-the-sky offer from Hertha, which is fighting for a place in the UEFA Europa League. Perhaps the club, which reportedly is in "competition" with the LA Galaxy and MLS, is trying to appeal to Ibrahimovic's human side.

"We've no money, BUT much love and enthusiastic fans."

Have to appreciate the effort.
