No Old Trafford return for Zlatan
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has ruled out a return for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede suggested he’d be willing to return.
The former AC Milan, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain striker spent two seasons at Man United.
In the 2016/17 season, Zlatan featured 46 times for the Red Devils, scoring 28 goals and assisting 10.
The striker then struggled with injury problems in the following season, eventually joinung MLS side LA Galaxy.
Since moving stateside, Zlatan has scored an incredible 44 goals in 49 appearances.
This week, when asked whether he could still compete in the Premier League, Zlatan half-heartedly suggested he’d be open to a return to Manchester United.
“I could easily play in the Premier League. If Man United need me I’m there,” Zlatan explained.
“But the Galaxy has me so sorry [laughs].”
Now, Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær has responded.
‘If he was 28 and not 38 next month – there’s a big difference’
Speaking ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Southampton on Saturday, Ole basically ruled out a move, explaining ‘he’s had his time at the club’.
‘I don’t think that’ll happen,’ Ole explained, as quoted by the Mail.
‘He’s had his time at the club. He’s had a fantastic career.
‘If he was 28 and not 38 next month – there’s a big difference. He’s had a great time here and he’s still doing well.
‘It’s unfortunate he got his injury when he did here. He knows my number. He never rented my house but he was looking at it. If he’s serious I’ll always speak to Zlatan.’
