Zlatan Ibrahimovic divulged that joining David Beckham's Miami-based Major League Soccer franchsie could still be in the cards down the line. Speaking with Goal.com, Ibrahimovic said he'd still consider MLS in the future, but first wants to concentrate on his new endeavor at Manchester United in the Premier League.

"David is a good friend of mine, and he has asked me to play for his (Miami) team," Ibrahimovic told the website. "For now, I want to achieve big things with Manchester United, but I have a lot of respect for the MLS, and anything is possible."

Considering Beckham's Miami outfit has yet to secure a stadium or build a roster, the decision to go to Manchester for at least one year makes sense for Ibrahimovic. At best, Miami would be looking at joining MLS in 2018. Already long in the tooth at age 34, a target date of 2018 would see Ibrahimovic well on the wrong side of 35.

There is some hope of eventually seeing Ibrahimovic stateside, though.

"I would never rule out the MLS in the future ... I feel as though I could play until I am 40. It is impossible to predict the future," Ibrahimovic told Goal.

It's fair to say that if there's anyone out there that could defy the odds, it's Ibrahimovic. And a partnership with Beckham in South Beach would be must-see TV.
