LA Galaxy head coach, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, has said that Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to end his career in Italy.
Schelotto, who coached Ibrahamovic in the Major League Soccer (MLS), United States of America, has earmarked Italy as the retirement plan for the player.
"He does not know what he will do now,” Schelotto told Radio Kiss Kiss when asked about Ibrahimovic's future.
"He is a wonderful player, but I don't know what his next step will be - perhaps he'll finish his career in Naples or with Milan.
"I don't know where he will go but he deserves and wants to finish his career in Italy."
Ibrahimovic, on Wednesday, said he will not be renewing his contract with his current employers, LA Galaxy.
The 38-year-old moved from Manchester United in 2018 to join the MLS in the United States of America. So far, Ibrahimovic has scored 52 goals in 56 appearances for LA Galaxy, a remarkable record for his age, pundits say.
The ex-Paris Saint-Germain striker has been strongly linked with a return to Europe, with MLS commissioner, Don Garber, last week suggesting former club, AC Milan, as the frontrunners to re-sign the soon-to-be free agent.
