Zlatan Answers Messi MLS Question

Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has responded to a question that was put to him about superstar Lionel Messi, whom he used to play alongside at FC Barcelona.

The Swede spent just one season playing with the Argentine, in 2009/10, before a fallout with Pep Guardiola led to him leaving the Spanish giants for AC Milan.

While Ibrahimovic struck 22 times for the Blaugrana that season, his strike partner at the time, Messi, found the back of the net on 47 occasions.

After the name, Inter Miami FC, and crest of the club owned by David Beckham was revealed recently, reports emerged suggesting that the Englishman would try to persuade Messi to join his side when they officially launch in 2020.

As such, Ibrahimovic, who current plays for LA Galaxy in the US, was asked whether or not he thinks Messi should consider a move to the MLS in the future.

"To Miami? Absolutely," he told TMZ.

"He (Messi) would fit in anywhere."
