Ibrahimovic hints at returning to Serie A

Major League Soccer (MLS) club La Galaxy’s veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted at returning to Serie A in the near future.
The former Sweden international’s contract with LA Galaxy is coming to an end on January 1, 2020 and he is unlikely to extend his contract with the Los Angeles-based club.

While talking Gazzetta dello Sport cited by Calciomercto.com, Ibrahimovic reveals that he has not thought about where he will play in the future, but calls Italy as his second home and also revealed that he will only come back to the Serie A to win the title.

“I am 38 years old and I have enthusiasm of a boy with the same desire to win,” he said. “I have not thought about my future just yet. I will calmly evaluate after discussing with my family. I will only continue playing if I find something special which can keep the fire inside me alive; here or elsewhere.”

He added: "Italy is my second home. I will listen to everything, but I want to fight for the maximum. If I return, I would like to aim for the Scudetto.”

Ibrahimovic has represented as many as three clubs in the Serie A—Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan—and while talking about which team he would like to join next, the former Manchester United striker came up with an interesting response.

“I liked the documentary dedicated to Maradona’s time with Napoli and I genuinely believe that there is nobody like him,” he said. “Seeing the love of the fans in that city would almost make me want to try an experience with Napoli. It would be fantastic to replicate what Diego did. I am not saying that I will go there as the final decision will depend on various aspects. But that is a square that creates enthusiasm. With me at the San Paolo, you will see a full crowd every day and then there is a great coach in Carlo Ancelotti.”

Talking about the two Milan-based club, the 38-year-old believes that the Nerazzurri are growing whereas the Rossoneri are a disaster.

“I don’t know Conte but I have heard good things about him,” said Ibrahimovic. “The Nerazzurri are surely growing but Milan is a total disaster; so many words but very few facts.”
