The Zlatan Ibrahimovic experiment with Manchester United hasn't worked out as expected, and the Swedish striker is having a hard time adjusting to the English Premier League.
Even though Zlatan has netted seven goals across all competitions for The Red Devils this season, his future remains up in the air. Considering he signed a one-year deal at the start of the season, he could either extend it for another year or look to play elsewhere. And all signs point towards him doing the latter.
Don't look now, but MLS could be a realistic option for the forward. In an interview with sports newspaper Aftonbladet, Ibrahimovic hinted about a possible move to the States in the near future.
"It's a huge option for me. For the football and everything else. I can see myself conquering the US as I have with Europe," Ibrahimovic told media. "Lots of people stay in one place throughout their career, but I've travelled around like Napoleon, and conquered every new country where I've set foot."
Yes, he did compare himself to Napoleon, but he didn't stop there, and he was quoted saying that "perhaps I should do what Napoleon didn't and cross the Atlantic and conquer the States as well."

There's no question Zlatan would conquer the MLS. If players like Robbie Keane, Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo are successful, one can only imagine what Zlatan would do considering he still has a few years left of good soccer ahead of him.
Zlatan has already played for Malmö, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, FC Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain before joining Manchester United this summer, winning a total of 27 trophies and establishing himself as one of the best players in the world. Could he finish his career in MLS?
It would definitively be a dream come true for all soccer fans in America.
