Zlatan Ibrahimovic Claims That He's "Coming Back To Spain" In Video Message

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Claims That He's "Coming Back To Spain" In Video Message

LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dropped a huge hint that he will leave Major League Soccer for a spectacular return to Spain.

The 38-year-old, whose contract expires in December this year, hinted at the prospect of leaving the club following their playoff defeat against Los Angeles last week.

"I have another two months (until my contract expires)," Ibrahimovic told reporters.

"We'll see what happens. (If I stay), then MLS is good, because the whole world will watch it. If I don't stay, nobody will remember what MLS is."

Days later and the former Barcelona, Manchester United and Inter Milan forward is claiming that he is "coming back to Spain" in a recent Instagram story post.

Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move to Serie A side Napoli in recent weeks but this could be the biggest hint yet that a move to La Liga is imminent.

"Hola Espana, guess what? I'm coming back." he said.

It comes eight years after he lifted the La Liga, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup treble with Barcelona, where he made just 29 appearances before leaving for AC Milan.

The Swede once claimed former Barca boss Pep Guardiola once hid from him in the dressing room after a game.

There wasn't so much a huge fall-out between the pair, instead it was more a real lack of rapport that meant the pair would avoid each other - with Zlatan recalling one time where Guardiola waited for him to leave.

"There was never any confrontation, he made sure of that," Ibrahimovic told Gazzetta dello Sport, via ESPN.

"When they played against my team, I went back to the dressing room after the game and he was in a room waiting for me to leave. At the door, one of his assistants told him: 'Ibra has gone, you can come out now.' I never understood why.

"On television he always plays the tough guy but when there's a real meeting face-to-face, he hides. As a coach he is a phenomenon, but as a man..."

Ibrahimovic's anecdote follows on from his attack in 2018 when he said similar about Pep, calling him the "the most immature" coach he worked under and accusing him of taking a dislike to him from the very first day he turned up in Catalonia.

Who do you think Zlatan should join next?
