ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC is set to seal an incredible return to AC Milan after MLS commissioner Don Garber let news of the Swede’s movements slip.
The 38-year-old has been heavily linked with a return to Europe following a two-year stint in America, with his contract with LA Galaxy expiring at the end of the year.
Ibra even trolled fans by teasing a cryptic return to Spain that ultimately proved to just be a gambling promotion.
But Garber has hinted that the charismatic striker is in talks to seal a return to Italy, where he notched 148 goals across spells at Milan rivals Inter and AC, as well as Serie A champions Juventus.
In an interview with ESPN, he said: “Zlatan is such an interesting guy.
“He keeps my hands full, my inbox full, he’s a thrill a minute.
“You need to have those guys who are breaking through the clutter like David Beckham did in our early days.
“And a 38-year-old guy, who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world, he’s almost set records with how many goals he’s scored over the last two years.

“He’s exciting on and off the field, he certainly keeps our hands full.
“At the end of the day I’d love to see him back but that’s going to be up to LA Galaxy.
“I’ve enjoyed the Zlatan moments, particularly when he speaks to me in the third person.”
Ibrahimovic has spent the last 18 months in the MLS, and proved to be one of the league’s main attractions as he scored 52 goals in 56 appearances for LA Galaxy.
