Zlatan hints at MLS switch

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted that he tempted by a move to the MLS amid speculation linking him with a move to LA Galaxy.

Ibrahimovic has not played for United since Boxing Day, when he was forced off with a knee injury at half-time during a 2-2 draw with Burnley at Old Trafford.

The 36-year-old striker suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury last April, which required surgery and kept him out of action for seven months.

Ibrahimovic made his long-awaited comeback in a 4-1 win over Newcastle in November, but recurring knee issues have restricted him to seven appearances, scoring just one goal.

He has been linked with a move to the MLS in recent months, and now, the former Sweden international has admitted a switch to Los Angeles appeals to him:

“I did not know that several Swedes went to MLS.

“That means it’s tempting to play in the United States. Los Angeles is a nice city and I’ve been there a lot on vacation. It is laid back.

“I think it’s rumours all the time (about my future). When I play and when I do not play it is rumours. That’s good, that means I live.”

The MLS transfer window will close on May 1 with their mid-season window opening again on July 10 and shutting on August 8.
