Manchester United may have only signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a one-year deal, but they may be wishing they’d tied him down for longer.
The Swede has already hit five goals this season for his new club, though it’s not yet clear whether this campaign will be a swansong for the superstar.
While he retired from international duty after an unsuccessful Euro 2016, he has given no indication as to when he’ll hang up his boots altogether.
The latest suggestion is that the 35-year-old could in fact be heading abroad, not to China or the USA as has become the norm for ageing European players – but to India.
Indian side Delhi Dynamos are currently managed by Gianluca Zambrotta, who of course was Ibra’s teammate at AC Milan and Juventus all those years ago.
Zambrotta has told the Indian Express that he will try and tempt his old friend to join him on the sub-continent, and it’s certainly a move that could raise the profile of football in the country.
“Given his fan following in India, I think Zlatan would want to come and end his career here,” he said.
“On my end, I will definitely try and convince him to play for Delhi Dynamos.”
