Liverpool supervisor Jurgen Klopp says he might have been occupied with signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic if the striker hadn’t already played for Manchester United.

The 38-year-old has left LA Galaxy after two seasons with the American membership, which noticed him rating 53 targets in simply 58 appearances.

Despite nearing 40, the Swedish legend isn’t retiring simply but and is trying for a brand new workforce after his profitable spell Stateside.

The suggestion was put to Klopp that he might wish to convey Zlatan to Anfield, however the German was by no means satisfied by the concept.

‘If he had not played for Manchester United before, then we might have considered him,’ Klopp joked with Sportbladet.

‘No, but I’m not even certain he needed to play right here. We’re a fairly intense workforce.

‘While it may not always be right, it is entertaining anyway. He’s a incredible character and I actually hope he doesn’t cease taking part in soccer.

‘The world will miss him too much’

Zlatan posted a farewell message to LA Galaxy that was typical of the person, tweeting: ‘I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans – you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues…Now go back to watch baseball.’

According to the bookmakers, Ibrahimovic is most definitely to return to former membership AC Milan, with Sky Sbet making them simply 6/four to be his subsequent membership.
