"I know that [Napoli president Aurelio] De Laurentiis knows him, and with Zlatan you never know what could happen".
The LA Galaxy links remain very much alive, but reports in America suggests the Californian club are reluctant to match the £260,000-a-week deal Ibrahimovic is collecting at United this season.
The former Sweden global emphasised the importance of being happy when discussing his two years at AC Milan, where he won the Serie A title in 2010-11.
The big Swede helped Mourinho during their time together at Inter Milan in 2008-09 which resulted in Serie A glory and they were reunited after his record-breaking years at Paris Saint-Germain. "I spoke with [general manager Adriano] Galliani and [president Silvio] Berlusconi and they had convinced me to join them with great desire and motivation". And a player of Zlatan's status wouldn't want to miss out on big matches, and under the circumstances, Jose Mourinho will have a tough time to hold on to the Swede worldwide. When you're happy, you're just happy.
Ibrahimovic explained how it all went wrong. "He works you so that when you are on the pitch, you give 200 percent, and this is what I needed at my age". My impression at Juventus was great right from the start, above all working for Capello.
Even though he's now 35, he's silenced critics in England who believed Zlatan would not be able to cope with the intensity of the Premier league as he's scored 26 goals across all competitions.
"I train every day and Mourinho has given me a fantastic programme".
"I had a bad knee that last day of the season in Parma, but I still came on and decided the title with two goals".
