Zlatan Ibrahimović has hinted that he is open to returning to Manchester United should the club need him after his two-season spell at the club from 2016-2018 ended with a move to the MLS with La Galaxy.
Ibrahimović, who has always shared a strong relationship with former United boss José Mourinho, helped the club win three pieces of silverware under the Portuguese manager, collecting the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League during his time at Old Trafford.
In an interview with PA Dugout, the Swede backed himself to still succeed in the Premier League at the age of 37, saying: “I could play easily in the Premier League, so if United need me, I’m here. But [LA] 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.”

Ibrahimović was United’s designated penalty taker whilst at the club and the debate regarding United’s penalty taker has seen both Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford miss the last two penalties awarded to Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side, ending in dropped points against Wolves (1-1 draw) and Crystal Palace (2-1 loss) with only three games played.
The MLS forward has defended the recent poor form, however, and believes the result against Palace was down to bad luck, saying: “I look, I look, I look. I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky. If they score the penalty, it’s a different game but a game in England is not finished until its finished. Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment.”
