It's a, I think he's had his time at the club and he's been... he's been, he's had a fantastic career, I wouldn't expect him to be serious either when he says that." STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told former Red Devils striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic that "he knows my number" if the Swede is serious about a return to Old Trafford.

Earlier in the week, Zlatan, now plying his trade with LA Galaxy in the MLS, taunted a return to Manchester, saying "I could play easy in the Premier League, so if United need me, I'm here," before adding "but Galaxy has me, so I'm sorry," while grinning.

When pushed if Solskjaer was seriously considering a return, the Norwegian confirmed he believed that Zlatan's "had his time at the club." Ibrahimovic spent an injury-laden two seasons at Manchester United, scoring 29 goals in 53 appearances.

United face a trip to Southampton on Saturday (August 31) and were on Friday (August 30) drawn in Group L in the UEFA Europa League alongside Astana, Partizan and AZ Alkmaar.
