Carlo Ancelotti would welcome Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Everton but has not approached the Swede about a move just yet.
It has only been a couple of days since the Italian got appointed as Everton manager and rumours have already sparked off about a potential reunion.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a good friend of mine, he was my player,” Ancelotti told reporters in a news conference on Monday. “Fortunately I have trained a lot of good players, fantastic players. Ibrahimovic has finished his time in the United States but really I don’t know what is his idea. I really don’t know. I’d have to call him. If he wants to come here, wants to come, enjoy it, then he can come.”
Just to curb your excitement, Ancelotti added: “but not to play!” He did not exactly shut down rumours with that comment. When questioned if his status as a Champions League-winning manager will help attract big names to the Goodison, he replied, “I don’t know. But I’m not a manager that is used to working alone.
“I want to speak to the club, we have to speak, have to work together to find the right solution. I don’t know whether it is helpful if some players want to come here because I am here. It has happened in the past sometimes. I think there are a lot of fantastic players, but it’s important to choose the ones important to our squad.”
