Gonzalo Higuain Has His Say On AC Milan Signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic

There's nothing we'd like to see more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic return to Europe, even if it's on a part time basis. But how would his potential teammates feel about it? Gonzalo Higuain has given his thoughts.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a bit of a marmite player. He pretty much always delivers on the pitch, no matter what team in no matter which country, but his personality splits opinion on if people like him or not.

The whole 'what would Zlatan do' and 'I am Ibra' type of nonsense really irks a lot of people but equally there are plenty who find the Swede entertaining and funny.

Ibra has left Europe behind and moved to America for what is likely to be the final part of a career that has seen him have a ridiculous amount of success.

The MLS might be a lower standard of league than he's used to but at 37 it's still impressive that he's managed to knock in 21 goals this season, in just 25 games.

America's 'soccer' season is coming towards its end and that will give Zlatan some time off. In recent weeks he's been linked with a loan move back to former club AC Milan.

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Calciomercato, Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain talked about the prospect saying, "Given that they [the potential move] are things to ask the company, I can only say that I like to share the field with the great players, and he is a great player."

Higuain joined the Rossoneri from Juventus this summer and he's bagged four goals in five games in Serie A with another two in two in the Europa League.

His goals have taken to only 10th but they go into this weekend's Milan derby in good form and will be hoping to stop Inter from further distancing themselves in the race for top four.

If Ibra did move back on loan it would be similar to David Beckham's jaunt back from La Galaxy to PSG and Milan when he'd gone to play in the MLS.

Will Zlatan move back to Europe and will he somehow end up with a winners medal again?
