Talk about Ibrahimovic moving to California has been prominent around the American side's pre-season training camp, but Klein is giving little away over the pursuit of the Swede.
“We're nowhere," he said. “We wouldn't comment on it."
Asked whether he could confirm talks are ongoing, Klein continued, speaking to MLS Soccer: “We wouldn't [confirm that]. It's unfair, because he's contracted to another club."
Coach Sigi Schmid admits landing Ibrahimovic could potentially have a huge impact for his side.
“If it happens, it happens, and once it happens, then we'll give thought to it," he said. “Right now, it's preparing the group that I have and preparing the group that I have to win games.
“He's a big player. Big players have an impact on your team, whether that's Zlatan or whether that's [Leo] Messi or a Neymar – guys like that have an impact on your team."
