?In an interview with the Metro newspaper, the 37-year-old LA Galaxy striker said the club where he launched his career would always be special for him. 
“They want to have me home and see me in the sky blue jersey,” Ibrahimovic said of his former club. “MFF knows that the club lies close to my heart, that it’s my city, and that it was there that I started the story that I’m writing. Finish there? I don’t know. Perhaps.” 
Ibrahimovic first raised the possibility during an interview on Instagram two weeks ago, when he said that the club had approached him, and that he would love to take it to the final of the Allsvenskan, Sweden's top football league. 
“I’m not closing any doors, and it’s a trophy I’m missing,” he said. 
There have also been rumours that Milan, the club where Ibrahimovic hit his career peak, wants him back. But Ibrahimovic played them down in the interview. 
“The whole world wants to have Zlatan, so I’m not surprised. And Italy is my second home, everyone knows that. Of all the clubs I’ve played for Milan is the biggest, in many different ways. I was very happy there. But I’ve heard nothing concrete about this.” 
At Galaxy, which attracts big name footballers at the end of their careers, Ibrahimovic has kept up his reputation as a prolific goal scorer, shooting 20 into the net in just 24 matches.

Zlatan has been ‘cured’ of coronavirus: AC Milan

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been given the all-clear to end his quarantine period and return to action after testing negative for coronavirus, the Serie A club announced on Friday.

Milan confirmed in a statement that the Swedish striker had “tested negative” twice in a row, as stipulated in the protocol to be able to lift the quarantine procedure.
Ibrahimovic, 39, sounded a more triumphal note on his social media: “You are cured! The health authority says the quarantine is over, you can go out!”, he wrote on Twitter.

The announcement comes a day after Milan said Ibrahimovic had tested positive a second time for Covid-19, putting in doubt his participation in the Milan derby on October 17.
Ibrahimovic first tested positive on September 24.
The derby remains in doubt with two other Milan players and five from Inter currently in self-quarantine.
In spite of his absence, Milan have made a decent start to the season, having climbed to second in Serie A after winning all three of their games and reaching the group stages of the Europa League.
