And now the 36-year-old has added more fuel to the flames by saying the chances of him appearing in Russian Federation are very high.
The former PSG, Barcelona and Milan man has represented his nation at two previous World Cup finals and four European Championships, a quarter-final finish in 2004 marking Sweden's best tournament with Zlatan in the team.
Zlatan Ibrahimović recently made a high-profile move to LA Galaxy, and the Swedish star has wasted no time making an impact for the Major League Soccer club. Ibrahimovic said. "I mean, we come with the sun, they come with the wind, but the sun was the stronger today, so we're happy".
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dropped a huge hint that he is bound for this summer's World Cup after saying chances of playing for Sweden in Russian Federation are "skyhoga", which is Swedish for "sky-high".
Sweden will face South Korea, Germany and Mexico in their World Cup group, with the MLS taking a nine-day break during the competition.
