Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘wanted by Bologna on a six-month contract’ once LA Galaxy deal expires in December

  • Bologna could make a surprise move for Zlatan Ibramovic on a six-month deal
  • The Swede’s LA Galaxy deal ends in December and has been linked with Serie A
  • A switch to Bologna would mean link-up with old friend Sinisa Mihajlovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make a sensational return to Serie A when his LA Galaxy contract expires in December, with Bologna believed to be interested in making a shock move for the Swede.

There has been much speculation regarding what the 38-year-old’s next move will be once his deal in LA expires in December, with established Serie A sides such as Napoli and former club Inter Milan touted as possible destinations. 

But Italian paper Corriere dello Sport report that Bologna are interested in making a surprise move for the superstar striker on a six-month contract.

The prolific striker has had successful stints in Serie A with Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.

If Ibrahimovic was to make the move to Bologna, he would reunite with old friend and Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic.

‘Mihajlovic is a friend, so if I were to choose Bologna, it’d be just for him. We have spoken recently. He told me: “Zlatan, here the others would run for you. All you need to do is stay up there and put the ball in the net”.

‘I thank him, but it’s probably unlikely to happen. If I change my mind, then I’ll call him straight away, especially because I could still get 20 goals in Serie A.’

Ibrahimovic’s Galaxy set up a MLS play-off semi-final tie with Los Angeles FC on Sunday as they overcame Minnesota United 2-1 at the weekend.
