Manchester United’s striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has put forward the possibility of moving over to the Major League Soccer and believes he can also see himself conquering the United States.
Ibrahimovic had moved to United from Paris St. Germain after a wonderful time with the team. He won four Ligue 1 trophies, scoring 156 goals in a total of 180 appearances. He has also won a number of league titles with Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
The 35-year old, who has been linked with a move to MLS in the past, is quite open to heading into new grounds and possibly conquering. Speaking to the daily newspapers, Aftonbladet, Ibrahimovic had said,
“It’s a huge option for me. For the football and everything else. I can see myself conquering the US as I have with Europe. Lots of people stay in one place throughout their career, but I’ve travelled around like Napoleon, and conquered every new country where I’ve set foot. So perhaps I should do what Napoleon didn’t and cross the Atlantic and conquer the States as well.”
Ibrahimovic will be honored with a statue in Stockholm, just outside the Friends Arena Stadium, after having won the Swedish Golden Ball award on Monday, making it the 11th win for the Swede so far.
The striker, who is also Sweden’s all-time top goal scorer also spoke on his move in the past from PSG to Manchester United and he insists that he does not regret the move which had been signed as a one year deal, but with an option to continue for 12 more months.
Ibrahimovic, earlier in June after the Euro 2016, had put an end to his international career which had seen him come off with a 116-cap in which he scored a total of 62 goals.
