LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is soon to become a free agent.
And MLS Commissioner Don Garber has suggested he may return to AC Milan.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is “being recruited by AC Milan”, according to Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber. The 38-year-old has spent the past 18 months in MLS, but his contract with LA Galaxy expires in December and he has been linked with a return to European football.
Ibrahimovic played for the Rossoneri for two seasons before leaving for Paris Saint-Germain in 2012 and Garber has suggested a return is on the cards.
“Zlatan is such an interesting guy,” he told ESPN. “He keeps my hands full and my inbox full, but he’s a thrill-a-minute. You need to have those guys that break through the clutter like David Beckham did in our early days. He is a 38-year-old guy who is being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world.”
Ibrahimovic was named in the MLS Best XI in 2018 and 2019 after scoring a combined 53 goals, and Garber has not entirely ruled out the Swedish striker agreeing a new contract to stay in Los Angeles.
“He has almost set records for the number of goals he has scored in the last two years and is exciting on and off the field. I would love to see him back – that is up to LA Galaxy. I have enjoyed the Zlatan moments, especially when he speaks to me in third person.”
