Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Re-sign Zlatan? He has my number!

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has joked about re-signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic from LA Galaxy.

Former United striker Ibrahimovic joked he is "ready" to help his old team out if they are in need of striking reinforcement and said - despite being 37 - he could still play in the Premier League.

Asked about the Swedish striker's comments, Solskjaer said: "If he was 28 and not 38 next month, it's a big difference, but Zlatan has had a great time here and of course he is still doing well but he was just unfortunate that he got his injury when he got it here.

"Who knows, he's got my number. He never rented my house but he was looking at it.

"If it's serious I will always speak to Zlatan."

Asked to clarify if he was being serious, he said: "I don't think that'll happen, no. I think he's had his time at the club, he's had a fantastic career at the club."
