The MLS want Zlatan Ibrahimovic to stay in LA but has confirmed that AC Milan has started talks with the player.

It’s safe to say that Ibrahimovic’s time in the USA was nothing short of phenomenal.

The Swede played 58 games in two seasons and scored 53 goals.

He is marketable commodity that enhances the fastest growing sport in America.

It is understandable why MLS commissioner Don Garber is desperate to keep him stateside.

In an interview with ESPN , Garber Ibrahimovic captures the imagination, and he would love for him to stay at the Galaxy.

He said:

“Zlatan is such an interesting guy. He keeps my hands full and my inbox full.”

“He’s a thrill-a-minute and you need to have those guys that are breaking through the clutter like David Beckham did in the early days.”

“He has almost set records with how many goals he has scored over the last two years and he’s exciting on and off the field, right?”

“He certainly keeps our hands full.”

“I’d love to see him back but that’s going to be up to the LA Galaxy.”

“I have enjoyed the Zlatan moments, particularly when he speaks to me in the third person.”

However, there is a problem with that wish.

By Garber’s own admission one of the world’s tops clubs as now entered the picture in an attempt to sign him.

He added:

“He is a 38-year-old guy who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world.”

Ibrahimovic has been rather quiet of late, he is sure to surprise everyone when he finally announces his latest footballing home.
