With Leeds United owner, Andrea Radrizzani’s teasing reveal this week that talks had been held with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani during the January transfer window, there are certainly fans who have been left with a mini ‘what if’ feeling – despite what has subsequently happened with the postponement of the 2019/20 football calendar and the confusion that raises when it comes to the year coming to an end.

Speaking in a wide ranging interview with Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio this week, Radz admitted that talks with PSG didn’t get very far really, but more progress was made with the Swedish goalscoring legend – albeit not nearly enough – and ultimately he decided to return to AC Milan for a second spell.

“I spoke with Zlatan Ibrahimovic more concretely. He could have given us that decisive push but he decided to go to AC Milan. He has been very honest and transparent with me. We need to be rational and coherent with the strategy of both coach and team. I did not even speak with Marcelo Bielsa about Cavani and Ibrahimovic because we never got to the stage that we could sit down and talk about them.”

With Radz not ruling out a return for the 38-year-old, it’s fair to say most of the reactions on social media were of a humourous nature, or outright disbelief that it was ever likely to happen.
