Ibrahimovic discusses fiery relationship with Louis van Gaal

The Sweden striker has spoken about his troubled past with the Manchester United manager, though he has not ruled out working with him again.

Louis van Gaal and Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not have always seen eye-to-eye in the past but the Swedish striker would have no problems working with the Manchester United manager again.

That was the message gleaned from a Sports Illustrated interview with the 33-year-old in which the forward spoke openly about his past dealings with LVG. Paris Saint-Germain signed the striker for £15.7 million, as reported by the BBC.

Asked about his relationship with Van Gaal, Ibrahimovic admitted it was 'not good' citing their previous coming together at Ajax in the Eredivisie.

"He was a director in Ajax and the way he is working is not the way I work," he explained.

Despite his negative memories of life under LVG, though, Ibrahimovic was quick to stress that he would still have no problems working under the Manchester United boss.

"At the end, I think he is professional and I am professional. Whoever I work with, I never had this kind of problems, because at the end I need to do my job, he needs to do his job," he explained.

"And I think a lot of fights would happen but that's something I like."

The news comes amid reports linking the Swede with shock Old Trafford switch.

A report carried by The Manchester Evening News cites several other media outlets suggesting Manchester United could offer the forward a three-year contract.

With PSG since the start of the 2012-13 season, the Sweden international has scored 106 goals in 126 games for the Parisiens, winning a hat-trick of league titles in the process. Last season, Paris Saint-Germain completed a domestic treble of the Ligue 1 title, Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France.
