One club that could claim Ibrahimovic’s services is former side AC Milan, according to the team’s sporting director Massimo Mirabelli.

“Ibrahimovic? In life, never say never. Maybe an old acquaintance of ours could come back…,” Mirabelli told Sport Mediaset.

“I don’t want to hint at Ibra, that’s not the case. We have our feet on the ground.

“We’ll evaluate the things that we have to do after August 15.”

Ibrahimovic is currently a free agent after Manchester United failed to give the Swede a new contract following the end of the 2016/17 Premier League season.

The veteran goalscorer hasn’t played since April, when he suffered a knee injury in the UEFA Europa League. Last season, Ibrahimovic still managed to score 28 goals in all competitions prior to his injury and led the Red Devils in the finishing department.

Ibrahimovic has been linked with several clubs over the summer, including MLS side LA Galaxy, however, a move to the U.S. doesn’t appear to be in the cards with the team currently possessing three Designated Players.

Without an available DP slot, it would be difficult for the Galaxy to financially afford Ibrahimovic’s services.
