Ibrahimovic admits World Cup back on agenda after LA Galaxy move

Released Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is considering declaring himself available for Sweden's World Cup squad.

Ibrahimovic has agreed to join LA Galaxy.

"The main focus now is Galaxy, I settle in, get to know my new team-mates, get to know the club, get to know the city. When I feel comfortable there, you take the next step," Ibrahimovic said in a video interview on the MLS club's official website.

"I mean they (Sweden) are calling me every day asking me, how do you feel? What do you want? What are you thinking? How is the situation? But one step at a time.

"If I feel good, if I feel I am able and can do what I know I can do, I mean the door will always be open. It has nothing to do on the other side, it is from this side, let's say me.

"If I want, I am there (the World Cup), if I don't want, I am not there, but one thing a time.

"I said I am very hungry to play football, I need to play football, and when I start to do that, then we see what happens."
