Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the experienced and prolific Swedish forward who has played for the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and more, has spoken to the Mirror about his past career; revealing more about his move from Barcelona to AC Milan after all did not go to plan in Catalonia.

"After the difficult experience at Barcelona, I could have gone to Manchester City, but I refused because I needed to find happiness. I decided to return to Italy (to Milan) because I knew I would be happy there. In Manchester I don't know if I would have been happy, it would have been a different experience."

Ibrahimovic is currently rolling back the years with MLS club LA Galaxy as the powerful Swedish forward continues to impress on yet another different stage. Before Ibrahimovic signed a new deal with the Galaxy, he had been touted with a return to AC Milan; something which cannot be ruled out before the end of his career.
