Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refused to rule out a return to Serie A and is confident he could still shine at the highest level even at the grand old age of 38.

The former Sweden international spent four successful seasons playing in the Italian top flight during his spells at Inter and AC Milan.

Ibrahimovic currently plays his football in the MLS with LA Galaxy where he has scored 35 times in 46 appearances.

His contract is up at the end of the year and Ibrahimovic admits he would be open to a return to Italy or another one of the top European leagues.

When asked if he would still like to play in Serie A, Ibrahmovic told Sky Sport Italia: ‘Oh 100 per cent, I know I could still make the difference, both in Italy and in other countries. 

‘I’d do better than the players who are there now. My contract expires in December and I don’t know what will happen after that.’

Ibrahimovic returned to the city of his first club Malmo this week where he was honoured with a statue.

Speaking at the event, he added: ‘I am very happy and honoured, as it means I’ve left my mark and this will remain forever.

‘Now that there are two Ibras, the world is a better placeā€¦ and more dangerous! One is the original, the other will get to live forever. Some players get to win trophies, others have trophies and a statue.’
