Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted that he could move to Major League Soccer when his time at Manchester United comes to an end.
The 35-year-old joined the Reds when his contract at Paris Saint Germain expired in the summer, and has so far scored eight goals in 17 appearances in all competitions. Despite this acceptable return he has struggled to find his best form at times, and this has led to suggestions an option to extend his stay beyond the season may not be exercised.
Despite his advancing years there would be no shortage of takers for a player who has won 13 league titles during his glittering career, with a number of clubs linked with his signature before he decided on a move to England. But Ibrahimovic has hinted that United could be his last club in Europe, as he admits to being attracted by a move to the United States.
“It’s a huge option for me. For I can see myself conquering the US as I have with Europe,” he told Aftonbladet. “Lots of people stay in one place throughout their career, but I’ve travelled around like Napoleon, and conquered every country where I’ve set foot. So perhaps I should do what Napoleon didn’t and cross the Atlantic and conquer the States.”
Although Ibrahimovic started life in England with five goals in as many games, he then went eight without scoring before he bagged a brace in a 3-1 win at Swansea City. He was absent through suspension for the 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal, but the former Sweden international will be back in contention for the visit of West Ham United on Sunday.
