Los Angeles Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has ruled out a loan move to Europe in the January transfer market.

The 37-year-old has already completed his first season in Major League Soccer after scoring 22 goals in 27 games for the US side.

According to reports, the former Manchester United striker could pursue a short-term loan to an European club during the MLS offseason.

However, the former PSG striker, who signed two years with the MLS side, admits LA Galaxy know his wishes and demands.

“If I belong to Galaxy, I am a Galaxy player,” Ibrahimovic said. “I don’t go abroad and do these things – loan and this… I don’t need that.”

“I mean if I belong to one club, I stay in one club. I focus on that club and I give all my attention to that club, so that is not in my mind.”

“For me to return, I want to be able to challenge for the trophy,” Ibrahimovic continued. “I am not here for a vacation. I am here for the challenge.”

“I want to feel I have a chance to be the best in MLS – my team, not me, because I am the best. I want to feel my team against the other ones.”

“In the long term, I don’t know how it looks like. It is new for me – I am here six or seven months.”

“But the club knows all my wishes and all my demands. It is up to them what they want. But they are positive and they have been very good to me. They have helped me and my family with whatever I need. Let’s say I am not worried.”

Asked when he expects to sort out his future, Ibrahimovic said: “As soon as possible. Everything is a work in progress. Everybody is working so let’s see.”

“It depends how big of a loan we can get from the bank.”

Galaxy president Chris Klein has revealed his verdict on the veteran striker’s future by insisting that they are planning for Swedish star to stay.

“Our plan is to have Zlatan back with the club. What he did this year is certainly well documented, from the impact he had on our team with 22 goals and 10 assists,” Klein said.

“He wants to win and we want to win with him, so our intention is to bring him back and have him as part of our club for 2019.”

“We are having conversations. I know that he has certain things that he wants and as a club, it is a priority for us to keep him here.”
