Rumors have it that Manchester United could lure 38-year-old striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich back to Old Trafford in January as part of Solskjaer’s desire to upgrade his team at the final half of the pitch.
The Sweden international came to the end of his contract with MLS side LA Galaxy some weeks ago and is currently a free agent.
The Sun had earlier revealed that Solskjaer is willing to bring the proven striker back to the team due to his experience and quality, but the latest reports say that the manager seems to have changed his mind.

According to Metro, the Norwegian boss is not seeking a short-term solution to his team’s attacking problems and he is not willing to sign the Swedish international on a short-term basis in January.
Zlatan Ibrahimovich managed to score 26 goals in his debut campaign at the Old Trafford Stadium during José Mourinho’s reign at the club but he couldn’t maintain such form in his second season due to injury.
Meanwhile, AC Milan and other highly rated clubs are monitoring the player’s situation with the hope of signing him as a free agent when the transfer window reopens next year.
Solskjaer is still very much involved in the deal to sign 33-year-old Mario Mandzukic from Juventus after pulling out of the race for Ibrahimovic.
