Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make a sensational return to Manchester United as the Red Devils have made contact with him, according to reports in Italy.
The Swedish superstar, 38, is expected to leave LA Galaxy at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Italy.
But Italian publication TuttoMercatoWeb reports that United are interested in bringing Ibrahimovic back to Old Trafford and are 'in talks' over a stunning move for the LA Galaxy striker.
Ibrahimovic left United in 2018 for the MLS side and has made 58 appearances for the California-based club, scoring an impressive 53 times and assisting 15 times.
The LA Galaxy captain and striker, who has been linked with Napoli and Inter Milan, teased in August that he would return to United 'if they needed him.'
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responded to Ibrahimovic by suggesting that he would welcome him back 'if he is serious' about returning.
Solskjaer has been struggling for first-choice striking options since the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan.
Anthony Martial, who has since returned from injury, has been United's main striker for the season.
And Solskjaer has also called upon Marcus Rashford and United starlet Mason Greenwood to play as the striker in the absence of Martial.
Ibrahimovic admitted in February that he relished the fact that he made his harshest critics "eat their own words" after his instant impact at United.
The former Sweden international, who recently claimed that he was returning to Spain in a video, played in potentially his final MLS match in LA Galaxy's 5-3 defeat to fierce rivals Los Angeles.
The former Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan striker was involved in a controversial confrontation with a Los Angeles fan after the Western Conference play-off semi-final clash.
Ibrahimovic had a verbal spat with the fan and grabbed his crotch in response to the supporter heckling him.
