Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to play for one last club before retiring – and LA Galaxy boss Guillermo Barros Schelotto says his final move will be to Italy.

Ibrahimovic this week confirmed he was leaving LA Galaxy, and has been linked with former clubs Manchester United and AC Milan as the January transfer window lurches ever closer.

With the 38-year-old set to be available on a free transfer, there has also been speculation of a move to Premier League leaders Liverpool – although Reds boss Jurgen Klopp quashed such talk .

And Schelotto has revealed that Ibrahimovic “deserves and wants to finish his career in Italy”, with the Swedish striker having previously played for Juventus and Inter Milan as well as AC Milan.

The LA Galaxy chief tipped Napoli as a possible destination, with Ibrahimovic having played under the Serie A club’s boss Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain.

“I don’t know what Ibra will do now,” Schelotto told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Hes a wonderful player, but I don’t know what his next step will be, maybe he’ll end his career at Napoli or even Milan.

“I don’t know where, but he deserves and wants to finish his career in Italy.”

Of the link to Napoli and Ancelotti, Schelotto said:“They know each other well, Zlatan clearly has the characteristics that Naples need.”
