Real Madrid have reportedly set their sights on signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the January transfer window
Things are going from bad to worse at the Santiago Bernabeu with Real slumping to a shock 2-1 home defeat to Levante on Saturday in La Liga, which was their fourth loss in five games across all competitions.
While Marcelo’s powerful 72nd-minute strike against Levante ended Real’s 482-minute wait for another goal, it was their longest goal drought in history.
The loss of all-time leading scorer Cristiano Ronaldo is beginning to have a big impact on the club and Los Blancos have begun weighing up their options in the winter transfer window
Cadena Cope reports that Real have now shortlisted Ibrahimovic as a perfect short-term solution to their striking problem.
The 37-year-old striker currently plays for MLS side LA Galaxy and has impressed in the United States upon his arrival from Manchester United earlier this year.
Ibrahimovic has managed 22 goals and seven assists in 26 MLS games for Galaxy this season.
The Swede’s contract with the MLS side expires in December 2019.
Ibrahimovic previously played for Barcelona in 2009, where he found the net 22 times in 46 appearances.
