The outspoken Swedish striker is out of contract at the end of December, and is seemingly looking for a new adventure after two seasons with LA Galaxy.

He was recently linked with a return to Old Trafford, but those rumours have since dried up, and later reports suggested that he could move to Fiorentina in Serie A.

However, Ibrahimovic has now insisted he would only join a side that can challenge for the league title, highlighting Napoli as a team that would interest him.

"If I were to come back, I'd want to challenge for the Scudetto, not just be signed by someone because I am Ibrahimovic. I can still make the difference," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I'm not a zoo animal to be put on display for people to see. I can still get 20 goals in Serie A.

"All the love that (Diego) Maradona gave that city makes me want to try at Napoli. It would be fantastic to repeat what Diego did."

Upon hearing about Ibrahimovic's remarks about Napoli, the club's coach Carlo Ancelotti insisted he would call the striker immediately to fast-track his potential signing.

"Ibrahimovic? I will call him tonight and tell him that we are waiting for him here," he said, as quoted by AS.

"I follow him a lot. In 29 games in the MLS, he scored 30 goals."
