Zlatan Ibrahimovic: A move to MLS 'tempting'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: A move to MLS 'tempting'

There are also talks that Zlatan would return to the Swedish national team for this World Cup.

Ibrahimovic has scored a Swedish record 62 worldwide goals in 116 matches.

The 36-year-old striker suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury last April, which required surgery and kept him out of action for seven months.

However, with Sweden qualifying for the showpiece in Russian Federation courtesy of a two-legged play-off victory over Italy, arguably their greatest ever player has expressed his interest in coming out of retirement.

"And then the national team will be just a outcome of his work at the club, but I can't confirm at all that both national teams have contacted him because I don't know". If I want, I do it. "That's good, that means I live". When you've played in the national team for 20 years and then you're not in it anymore, and you see the others playing in the national team, it's tough. But he's such an honest guy and such a champion he only wants to be back with that feeling of I'm totally ready for it. If I want to, I'm there, that's how it is.

New Zealand have lost their last two games and will be looking for a reversal in form to clinch the series. Taylor and Ish Sodhi combined for a 38-run partnership but it was too late to revive the innings.


Ibrahimovic was asked this week about the prospect of heading to Los Angeles, with Galaxy said to be leading the chase for his signature. After that tournament, he called it a day for Sweden. I want to play, with the club team, with the national team, it's the same thing.

"I think it's a mixture", he said. We have many heroes tonight.

"I think he won the right of choosing his life, his future, such an wonderful player with such an unbelievable career that only that terrible injury in the wrong moment broke a fantastic couple of seasons that he could and should have had with us. They (the Swedish national team) have done a good job", he added.

A healthy and in-form Ibrahimovic remains one of the most lethal forwards in the world―it's nearly impossible to suggest Sweden would be better off without him.
