Zlatan Ibrahimovic open to return at Manchester United
Football superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is enjoying his time in the Major League Soccer (MLS). The LA Galaxy striker, who has scored 46 goals in 49 appearances, is open for a move to former club Manchester United. Zlatan felt that he can easily play in the Premier League and joked he would return to United if they need him. Here's more.
Zlatan has been a revelation in the MLS and recently scored a brace for his side in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Los Angeles Football Club. It was Carlos Vela who denied Zlatan & Co. After the match, Zlatan claimed that he can still offer his service in the Premier League, before stating that he is hopeful of winning something here at LA Galaxy.
"I could play easy in the Premier League, so if United need me, I'm here," he said with a grin. "But Galaxy has me, so I'm sorry.Nah, I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it, I have 33 trophies that I brought with me here and hopefully I can get something here. And then we will see where that adventure finishes."
Zlatan had a superb first season at United, where his 28-goal haul helped them win the Europa League and the EFL Cup. However, he had a serious knee injury in the latter stage of the campaign and that halted his progress. After 27 goals in his debut season. he made just seven appearances in the second. He then moved to USA.
United are short in the striking department. They have two regular starters in Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. However, both aren't consistent. 17-year-old Mason Greenwood has been identified as the third choice. This happened after United let Romelu Lukaku join Inter Milan for £73 mn. Meanwhile, Inter have also agreed to take Alexis Sanchez on loan. The Chilean was a disaster at United.
Zlatan will add so much dynamism and depth in this United attack. He has recovered well from his gruesome injury in 2017 and has been a success at LA Galaxy. His stint there could end in November 2019. The manner in which he is scoring goals could help United. He brings in that wave of optimism and can help a young United side.
