It appears Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not be returning to La Liga football after all as further details emerged regarding a video he released on Tuesday.

The Swedish striker has been at LA Galaxy since 2018 but spent one largely unsuccessful season with Barcelona between 2009-2010 before leaving to join AC Milan.

On Tuesday he sparked rumours that he may be returning to play football in Spain when he posted a video on his Instagram story saying: “Hola Espana, guess what? I’m coming back.”

Some suggested the likes of Atletico Madrid may be among the favourites for his signature, with Ladbrokes placing Diego Simeone’s side at 5/2 to move for the 38-year-old.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s next club is yet to be decided

However, according to Spanish outlet AS the video may have been a publicity stunt for a betting firm that employ him as a brand ambassador.

According to AS Ibrahimovic has recently partnered up with Bethard, and that may be the group behind the cryptic message.

Ibrahimovic’s time at Barcelona was a mixed one following his signing from Inter Milan. Although he scored 21 goals in 45 appearances, he reportedly fell out with then-Barca manager Pep Guardiola, allegedly telling the Catalan boss “You bought a Ferrari, but you drive it like a Fiat.”

Ibrahimovic is out of contract with LA Galaxy in December, and has most likely played his last game for the club.
