Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has encouraged Zlatan Ibrahimovic to contact him if he’s serious about his desire to return to Manchester United, where the Swedish striker played from 2016 through 2018.

Ibra, who is currently playing in MLS for LA Galaxy, insisted he could still play in the Premier League after the Red Devils got defeated by Crystal Palace in their last game, which was their first-ever loss against the Eagles in the Premier League.

"I could play easily in the Premier League, so if United needs me, I’m here," Ibrahimovic told reporters.

After sending Alexis Sanchez to Inter, the Premier League giants are short of personnel in the attack zone, counting only with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood left to call upon.

Albeit he doesn’t think this move is not going to go through, Solskjaer has invited Zlatan to talk to him if he really wants to come back to Old Trafford.

"If he was 28, not 38 next month [maybe it would be possible]. There’s a big difference,” The Norwegian boss told during a press conference, as quoted by Goal.

“Zlatan had a great time here, he’s still doing well, it’s unfortunate he got his injury here. Who knows, he knows my number, he looked at my house. We can speak a native language, if he’s serious I'll always speak to Zlatan.

"I don’t think that will happen [Ibrahimovic returning to Manchester United], I think he’s had his time at the club, he’s had a fantastic career at the club."

Playing under Jose Mourinho, Ibrahimovic won the Carabao Cup and the Europa League before a serious injury forced him off the field and eventually out of the club. He scored 29 goals and dished 10 assists in just 53 games across all competitions with United.
