Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he would be interested in signing free agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic - if he had not already played for Manchester United.
Ibrahimovic confirmed that he would be leaving LA Galaxy on Wednesday and he announced his departure in typically brash fashion.
The Swedish striker, who scored a sensational 52 goals in 56 games for the Galaxy, took to social media to claim that he had 'conquered' MLS, while also advising fans of the league to go back to watching baseball now that he has gone.
I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans - you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues...Now go back to watch baseball pic.twitter.com/kkL6B6dJBr— Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) November 13, 2019
When asked if he was considering making a move for the legendary striker, Reds manager Klopp responded in a typically jovial manner.
Klopp also questioned whether the veteran striker would even want to join a side who play in such dynamic and up-tempo football.
"With that said, I couldn't have had more respect for Zlatan. I love his whole career, love his efforts, love his confidence.
"While it may not always be right, it is entertaining anyway. He's a fantastic character and I really hope he doesn't stop playing football. The world will miss him too much."
Although Milan are indeed the most likely destination for Ibrahimovic, the Swede could also end up elsewhere. Inter, Napoli and Bologna are all thought to be monitoring his situation, however any reports linking the striker with a return to Manchester United should definitely be treated with disdain.
