Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears to be enjoying himself in the USA.

The 37-year-old Swedish striker has scored 21 goals in 25 games for the LA Galaxy since leaving Manchester United in March 2018.

Ibrahimovic was signed by Jose Mourinho in 2016 but failed to break back into the first team after suffering knee ligament damage.

His performances at LA Galaxy have caught the eye and he's being linked with a short-term move back to Europe in January, with AC Milan reportedly interested.

ESPN's Mark Ogden got Man United fans thinking with his piece on a possible Ibrahimovic return to Old Trafford.

He wrote in ESPN: "If the rumours doing the rounds in Manchester's football circles are to be believed, Jose Mourinho is considering a move to take Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to Manchester United in January."

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku is currently struggling for goals, having failed to find the net in each of his last six outings.

It's only rumours at this stage - but Man United fans on social media have been offering their opinions on a potential Ibrahimovic return.

The general consensus seems to be that, despite his age, Ibrahimovic would be a good addition to the dressing room.

And the poll below confirms their position.

Ibrahimovic joining would obviously depend on whether or not Mourinho can make it until January.

Earlier this week, Ibrahimovic claimed Mourinho is the still "the right coach" for Man United.

"I think he has the ability to win [the Premier League]" said the Swede, speaking to BetHard. "I think he is the right coach for that club, for that team.

“But a coach is only as good as his team, so it’s not like he can do miracles if the team is not good enough.

"And I feel the team is good - it’s progressing, becoming better. This is his third year, the players know more and more the way he wants to play and how he wants it - so I believe, yes."
