Zlatan opens up on Man Utd interest as he discusses potential return

Date published: Wednesday 7th November 2018 12:44

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opened up on his future after being persistently linked with moves to former clubs Manchester United and AC Milan.

The veteran striker has enjoyed a glittering career before he sealed a move to Los Angeles Galaxy earlier this year.

And with the MLS season now at an end, Ibrahimovic, now 37, has been tipped up as a target for two of his many former clubs, while Real Madrid have also been touted as a potential suitor.

However, Ibrahimovic – who also counts Inter Milan, Barcelona, Ajax, Juventus and PSG among his former clubs – appears to only be focused on his current employers.

“There is interest, there’s no secret. There is interest from Europe, but my priority is the Galaxy. I’m here and I’m happy to be here. Interest … There will always be interest. This is normal. When I was injured one year, then yes, but now when I’m back, alive, it is not a surprise,” Ibrahimovic said.

The confident Swede also had a comedy response when questioned about links to West Ham last month.

“If I belong to the Galaxy, I’m a Galaxy player, I don’t go abroad. If I belong to one club, I stay with one club and focus on that club and give all my attention to that club. Me myself, I’m positive, the Galaxy want and they believe they will make big changes in the club. I’m in talks with the Galaxy, they have wishes, I have wishes, but I’m optimistic and I’m positive.

“I want to be able to challenge for the trophy. Like I said, I’m not here for a vacation, I’m here for the challenge and I want to feel I have a chance to be the best in MLS … my team, not me, because I am the best, but I want to feel like my team can compete against the others. The club knows all my wishes, all my demands and it’s up to them what they want.

“They were very positive and they have been very good to me, very helpful to me and my family with whatever I need. I have a good relationship with everybody. Let’s say I’m not worried. I think the results speak for themselves. Let’s just say I’m happy, my family, everybody is happy and we have a good time and good life here. Everybody is working.”
