Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be option for Real Madrid in January

22 Oct 2018

Given the club’s current troubles, Real Madrid could look to strengthen their frontline in January and LA Galaxy’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be on the club’s agenda, according to well-known Spanish journalist and radio commentator, Manolo Lama, who made the announcement on Spain’s Cope Radio.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus this summer, Madrid have failed to make up for the Portuguese’s goals, with Bale, Benzema, Mariano and Asensio, scoring just 18 goals between them in 12 games. Before scoring in the 2-1 defeat to Levante last weekend, Los Blancos had gone almost seven hours without a goal, prompting calls for reinforcements up front.

With Eden Hazard moving ruling out a January move to the Bernabéu, Ibrahimovic, whose contract ends with LA Galaxy in December, would be a viable temporary option for Madrid until Hazard makes his mooted move to the Bernabéu next summer.
