Ibrahimovic admits to being tempted by MLS switch

Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits ‘it is tempting’ to play in MLS as speculation surrounds the Manchester United striker’s future.

After a stunning debut campaign in the Premier League last season, which was ended prematurely by a serious knee injury, the veteran Swede has struggled to regain his fitness and form this term after re-signing for another year last summer.

Speculation has persisted that Ibrahimovic could move to MLS to finish his career in United States, while Jose Mourinho admitted on Friday that the 36-year-old’s time at Old Trafford is likely coming to an end. 

Ibrahimovic was asked this week about the prospect of heading to Los Angeles, with Galaxy said to be leading the chase for his signature.

“I did not know that several Swedes went to MLS,” Ibrahimovic told Swedish reporters. “That means it’s tempting to play in the United States.

“Los Angeles is a nice city and I’ve been there a lot on vacation. It is laid back.

“I think it’s rumours all the time [about my future]. When I play and when I do not play it is rumours. That’s good, that means I live.”
