Swedish striker tempted by Arsenal legend to move to America.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is interested in a move to America’s Major League Soccer (MLS) after talking about the prospect with his friend and New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry, reports Goal.com.
Ibrahimovic is still perfectly capable of performing in European competition, as he showed last season when he netted 40 times for PSG in just 45 games. He is also only 32-years-old, so he has numerous years left to perform at that level in France, although he is open to a switch to the US in the future.
The Swede has been talking to Henry, who has been in New York since 2010 and clearly has high praise for the club and the MLS in general.
Ibrahimovic told Sports Illustrated: “I’m intrigued by the idea of going to play in the United States,”
“My friend Thierry Henry is finding it very well and I often talk about the US Championship [with him].
“In another two or three years, it would be interesting to go and play in the USA.”
The MLS, and particularly New York, continues to attract big names, as recently-formed side New York City FC have recently announced the signing of Spain record-scorer David Villa.
Ibrahimovic would be one of the biggest names ever to perform in America were he to make the move across the pond. The Sweden captain has won league titles in Holland, Spain, Italy and France and he would be delighted to add the American title to his impressive collection.
