LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena refuses to rule out move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena has refused to rule out a future move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 35-year-old, who arrived at Manchester United last July on a one-year contract, has netted eight goals for Jose Mourinho‘s side so far.

Both Zlatan and Mourinho have entertained the idea of extending his contract for another year, depending on the success of the Swede’s first year.

Arena, when asked about the possibility of bringing the striker to Los Angeles, refused to rule out anything.

“There are going to be changes. We can get better, for sure. But all the things we’re going to do with our team we don’t discuss publicly,” he said.

“If you’re gambling you don’t turn your cards over to show everyone.”

Most high profile 35-year-olds would have happily settled in Beverley Hills by now, happily embracing semi-retirement in the MLS for a sizeable pay-check.

Zlatan, however, is not like most 35-year-olds. This is a man who saved his biggest challenge until last; even with 400 career goals to his name, the Swede remains determined to assert his authority at the highest level, expressing a desire for more trophies and more recognition.

One suspects that a move to LA Galaxy wouldn’t serve as a big-enough challenge for the Swede.
