The charismatic forward is under contract with the club for next season, but a few things have to happen if he is to return.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic played down the hype that surrounds English Premier League but said he fondly remembers his time spent at Manchester United as it helped him prove his doubters wrong. His impact for the Galaxy was surely felt though, and there's no doubt he can still be a wonderful player in Europe once again. They have wishes, I have wishes, but I'm optimistic and I'm positive.

The deal would eventually be agreed to transfer the striker to the Ligue 1 club, with Ibrahimovic stating that he had to accept the deal as he is "a man of his word".

The 37-year-old has seen his exploits in MLS with the LA Galaxy spark talk of a possible return to Europe now that his 2018 commitments in America have come to a close after missing out on a play-off spot.

"That's when I noticed that I had five missed calls from [the player's agent] Mino Raiola". "I cannot give you what I can usually give you", Zlatan says he told Mourinho towards the end of his time in Manchester.

Galaxy president Chris Klein said initial conversations with Ibrahimovic have been promising, and bringing him back is a top priority for the club.

"What he did this year is certainly well documented", Klein said. Let's just say I'm happy, my family, everybody is happy and we have a good time and good life here. "Hopefully we can come to a resolution that is good for both sides". Ibrahimovic scored a fantastic 28 goals, 17 in the league alone, in his debut season with United. On the final day of the regular season it surrendered a two-goal lead in a 3-2 loss to the Houston Dynamo that ended its playoff hopes.

"I think the season was like a roller coaster".

He told reporters at a media call when quizzed on the loan speculation: "There is interest, there's no secret".

He then turned on the typical Zlatan-mode saying, "As I said when I was in England, you're lucky I didn't come 10 years ago, because if I did what I did at 35 years old, imagine it if I was 25". "I'm not here for vacation". I want to feel my team against the other ones.
