The Swede revealed his decision on Instagram - where the 38-year-old posted a photo where he stands on a rock with his arms outstretched, looking out over Los Angeles - with the text:

"I came I saw I conquered. Thank you LA Galaxy for making me feel alive again. To Galaxy fans: You wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. Here you go. The story goes on ... now you can go back to watching baseball. "


At the same time, the talk, the writings about Ibrahimovic's possible move back to Italian Serie A became increasingly hot.

A reputation that some in the national team want to sue.

- It is clear that I hope he will come there because it would raise the league, it would raise interest from all over the world and the spotlight on Serie A. I hope he will come back, says Sampdoria's Albin Ekdal.

- They write about it every day in every newspaper, so it's clear that it's a hot topic there. I hope there is some truth to it but with Zlatan you never know what he will decide.

If there is a move back to Italy, Milan is a most likely club, Ekdal believes.

- Milan feels most natural. I have a hard time seeing him go to Bologna. If I had to "beta" would say Milan.

"The league is strengthened"

Cagliari goalkeeper Robin Olsen:

- Serie A is a very strong league and I'm not saying that just because I play there myself. I think more people can agree that it has become stronger in recent years.

What would it mean if Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns to Italy?

- It means very much. If you get the best players to the league, it is strengthened even more. This applies to all top players.

Andreas Granqvist:

- We'll see. You can never know with Zlatan. I hope he continues to play football and shows how good he is as a football player. Italy is the closest. He liked it quite well in Italy so it wouldn't be very surprising, he says.
