Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted he is in a bind after reports emerged of an eight-year-old Bosnian kid with cancer whose dying wish is to meet the striker.
Young Hajrudin Kamenjas from Sarajevo has leukaemia and has been told by doctors that he has less than a month to live.
His mother Amela Kamenjas told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that they now want Hajrudin to die at home but also that her son dreams of meeting Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who is of Bosnian descent.
Amela says her son calls his hero 'Ibrakadabra' and is constantly asking her to check the internet for any story she can find about Zlatan.
Hajrudin's story was reported in newspapers in Bosnia, Croatia, Italy, France and Sweden and his wish then got through to Ibrahimovic himself through the humanitarian organisation 'Light of Tomorrow'.
The striker scored two goals for PSG in their 3-0 Champions League win over Benfica on Wednesday night and there were some reports that the player had popped straight on a plane to Sarajevo to visit Hajrudin after the match.
However, Ibrahimovic admitted it wasn't that easy and that it was impossible for a footballer to grant every charitable wish imposed upon them.
"I get these type of requests every week," Ibrahimovic told Aftonbladet.
"The only difference now is that they have used media.
"We'll see what I can do. I always try to make everyone happy. We'll see what I can do for him. It's sad. When everybody is happy I am happy."
A PSG press officer also said reports that Zlatan was flying to Sarajevo were incorrect.
PSG have a huge game against Marseille on Sunday after which Ibrahimovic is due to join up with the Sweden squad for crucial World Cup qualifiers against Austria and Germany, which complicates things further.
You can understand both Zlatan's desire to please without compromising his professional career and also a mother who wants to make her dying son's dream come true.
However, the whole story illustrates some of the unique demands put upon superstar footballers that the average fan may not always appreciate.
