Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Tuesday suggested he will return to Spain in a cryptic message on Instagram.

There was already speculation that Ibrahimovic had played his last game for LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer following their playoff defeat to Los Angeles FC.

The Swedish superstar spent two years with Barcelona until 2011 and it seems is looking at another stint in Spain.

In a video posted on his Instagram page, the former Manchester United striker said: "Hola Espana, guess what? I'm coming back."

Ibrahimovic had been linked to a possible move to Manchester.

Ibrahimovic has had a memorable stint in MLS, guiding LA Galaxy to the playoffs for the first time since 2016. However, he has maintained MLS is moving in the right direction, but not at the pace he had hoped.

Earlier, when asked about his future in the US, the 37-year-old had said: "“If I don’t play in MLS who will you talk about then? I have another two months and we’ll see. What happens next year I really don’t know.”
