Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opened the door on a sensational return to Manchester United.
The 37-year-old left United 17 months ago to join MLS side LA Galaxy and has taken the league by storm, scoring 44 times in just 49 appearances.
Ibrahimovic, who has never been one to lack confidence, insists he would have no trouble still playing at the highest level in England and would not rule out a return to United.

‘Yes. I could play easily in the Premier League,’ the striker said. ‘So, if United needs me, I’m here. But Galaxy has me so I’m sorry.
‘I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it, I have 33 trophies that I brought with me here and hopefully I can get something here. Then we’ll see where that adventure finishes.’
Ibrahimovic spent two years in Manchester before departing for Los Angeles.

In his absence, the club have slipped further behind rivals Manchester City and Liverpool and on Saturday they were beaten 2-1 at home by Crystal Palace.
‘I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky,’ Ibrahimovic added.
‘If (Marcus Rashford) scored the penalty, it’s a different game, but a game in England is not finished until it’s finished. Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment.’
