'Big chance' MLS is his next stop after Manchester United - Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed to ESPN FC that he is eyeing a move to Major League Soccer when he leaves Manchester United.

Ibrahimovic, 35, will remain at Old Trafford until the end of this season at least after signing a new deal to return to action for Jose Mourinho's team when he recovers from his cruciate ligament injury.

The former Paris Saint-Germain forward had been linked with moves to the United States following the expiry of his last United contract in June, with sources telling ESPN FC that both Los Angeles FC and LA Galaxy were attempting to sign Ibrahimovic.

But having opted to remain at United this season, Ibrahimovic admits that his next move is likely to be to the MLS.

"I think there is a big chance of me going to the MLS," Ibrahimovic told ESPN FC. "But like I said, I'm not done yet.

"I go back to United to finish what I started, but after that, I think MLS can be in the picture. But let's see what happens."

Ibrahimovic confirmed to ESPN FC that he had offers from other clubs this summer, but wanted to play again for United instead.

"We had couple of teams [interested]," Ibrahimovic said. "I mean there was couple of teams reaching out, wanted 'Ibra-kadabra' in their team, but I had such a great year with United.

"We had a great year, we won three trophies. Fantastic guys, great club and a coach that I've known from before. I was happy.

"It's not always about the sporting thing. You choose when you sign for a club and I'm in a situation where I have to think 360 degrees around me.

"Everybody is happy about this and I'm super happy. Happiness has no value and this year I play for free, just like last year."
