The Swede has just signed a new deal with Galaxy.
Gattuso said, "I never spoke to Zlatan. When important people like our directors are here I respect them and everyone does their own job.
“I knew there was a chance, and I also knew from day one that it was difficult.
“There's no disappointment, if someone arrives I'm happy but I'm not going to tear my hair out about those who don't.
“The management knows who I like and who can be useful, and since July I've never spoken to a player outside our group."
