MLS commissioner Don Garber has dropped a massive hint that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will join AC Milan after his contract with Los Angeles Galaxy runs down
After an illustrious year-and-a-half-year spell in the Major League Soccer, the Swedish superstar is on his way of returning to Europe, with several clubs looking to snap him up.
Ibrahimovic’s former employees, AC Milan, are among the sides interested in his services, as the Rossoneri hope to overhaul a fragile squad that has endured an underwhelming start to the Serie A season.
The 38-year-old, who spent two years at the San Siro, was part of the Milan team to win the league title in 2010/11, which was their last major trophy.
Now, the MLS commissioner has suggested that the prolific forward might return to Italy’s fashion capital on a Bosman transfer.
“Zlatan is such an interesting guy,” Garber said in an interview with ESPN, as later reported by the Metro.

“He keeps my hands full, my inbox full, he’s a thrill a minute.
“You need to have those guys who are breaking through the clutter like David Beckham did in our early days.
“And a 38-year-old guy, who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world, he’s almost set records with how many goals he’s scored over the last two years.”
There is no doubt that Zlatan has everything it takes to turn the Rossoneri’s disastrous season around and add a new dimension to their toothless attack.
Despite his age, Ibrahimovic netted 30 goals in 29 outings for LA Galaxy during the regular MLS season, narrowly missing out on the league’s top-goalscorer award to Los Angeles FC talisman Carlos Vela.
