Real Madrid plan on making a shock move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic come January.

The Galacticos only narrowly avoided setting a new goal drought club-record in their recent encounter against Levante, with Marcelo’s strike in the 2-1 home defeat ending Real’s run of having played 480 minutes without scoring a goal.

In order to fix their offensive woes as well as fill the big boots left vacant by Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid are said to be looking for more attacking reinforcements.

According to the latest report by Cadena Cope, a potential signing has been identified by Los Blancos, in the form of LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


What Zlatan Ibrahimovic Said About Potential Man United Return

The Swedish superstar has been in lethal form for the MLS club, having already bagged 22 goals and 6 assists in 26 games for the Los Angeles-based outfit so far.

Real reportedly intend to bring in the 37-year-old as a short-term fix, similar to the way they signed Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City on loan back in 2011.

Zlatan’s goal-scoring heroics in the United States have also seen him get linked with a sensational return to Manchester United. However, the forward recently dismissed all the speculation himself, by stating that he’d rather focus on getting some rest.

The former Barcelona man admitted: “I think I’m in a situation where I need to have a good balance between work and rest. Because I came back from injury and because of my age and the load I’m putting in during training.”
