Argentine club Boca Juniors are reportedly readying an offer for LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though agent Mino Raiola has since rubbished the move.
The former Barcelona, Manchester United, Milan and Inter forward has scored 27 goals in 26 appearances this season for Galaxy, taking his overall record with the MLS side to 49 goals in 53 games.

And according to a report from AS
The report claims that both Boca chairman Daniel Angelici and sporting director Nicolás Burdisso have 'given the green light to the operation', and their eagerness is intensified by the fact that the club's presidential elections are coming up in December.
The summer's coup of Daniele De Rossi showed that the Argentine said could still attract some of the biggest stars around.
Of course, that was helped by the fact that the Italian's contract was up at Roma, and this brings us nicely back to Zlatan, whose deal with Galaxy is also set to expire this December.
As it stands, the Swede is not expected to renew his deal in Los Angeles, with yet another challenge in a sprawling career set to be undertaken instead. It is understood that he has already rejected a chance to join a side in Qatar, bolstering hopes that the 'romantic' choice of Boca is very much on the cards.
I have never offered Ibrahimovic to Boca Juniors or to anybody else. Total #fakenews— Mino Raiola (@MinoRaiola) September 25, 2019
However, it is certainly worth noting that the player's agent Mino Raiola, who these reports claimed had offered up Zlatan's services to the 2018 Copa Libertadores finalists, has publicly rejected such assertions.
In a tweet, Raiola wrote: "I have never offered Ibrahimovic to Boca Juniors or to anybody else. Total #fakenews."
