Zlatan Ibrahimovic has indicated that he could come out of worldwide retirement to represent Sweden at this summer's World Cup.

The concern for the Galaxy will be Ibrahimovic's knee injury which kept him out for seven months and still seems to be nagging the former Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona and PSG striker.

And if he can recover his fitness in time for the tournament, Ibrahimovic has hinted that he would be ready to return for the World Cup, if asked.

The 36-year-old Ibrahimovic retired from global soccer after the 2016 European Championship to focus on prolonging his club career. You see his body, you see how he came back from a big injury, we saw him on the pitch and he looks very sharp.

"He only wants to be back with that feeling of 'I'm totally ready for it.' So he's working hard and hopefully his evolution brings him to that level where he wants to have a positive answer".

"I want him to stay, the club want him to stay".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says a move to MLS is "tempting" as he heads towards a probable departure from Manchester United.


"I miss the national team", he told Swedish press, as quoted via AS.

"It's tough in general, when you think that I'm injured and not playing".

"For Zlatan, we all think it's his last season at Manchester United", Mourinho said.

And, who knows. If he gets a few games under his belt and returns to full fitness, why shouldn't he take his talents to Russian Federation this summer?

Ibrahimovic has scored a Swedish record 62 global goals in 116 matches.

He added: "I don't think anyone needs to call". If I want to, I'm there, that's how it is.

Sweden qualified for this year's World Cup in Russian Federation by beating Italy in a playoff. But one thing at a time. "When I can do what I want to, I'll have other thoughts".
