Zlatan seemingly open to Manchester United return

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted he would be open to a return to Manchester United in the near future.

The Swedish forward spent two seasons at Old Trafford between 2016 and 2018, scoring 29 goals in 53 appearances before leaving for LA Galaxy.

The 37-year-old has continued his prolific career by scoring 46 goals in 49 appearances since moving to MLS, and despite his advancing years believes he could still play a major role in the Premier League once his contract expires in November.

“The lion still roars, yes. I could still play easily in the Premier League. If United needs me, I’m here,” the charismatic Swede said, as per The Star.

“But right now Galaxy has me and that’s what I’m concentrating on.

“I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it. I have 33 trophies that I brought with me and hopefully I can win something here and then we will see where I finish.”

Ibrahimovic admits he has followed the progress of his former club and watched Saturday’s surprise home defeat to Crystal Palace.

The former AC Milan and Barcelona star believes Manchester United were unlucky in defeat, but says ‘anything can happen’ in English football.

“I saw United’s last game, it was unlucky — if they score the penalty, it’s a different game.

“But a game in England is not finished until it’s finished.

“Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes, in the heat of the moment.”
