Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been announced as part-owner of Swedish club Hammarby, the club confirmed on Wednesday.

Sources told ESPN that Ibrahimovic was considering investing in the club and the deal has since been made official.

“Hammarby is a fantastic club with passionate supporters and has great respect in both Stockholm and Sweden,” Ibrahimovic said.

“I have always liked the club and the fans. I am impressed with what the club has done in recent years, both on and off the pitch. Being able to join and develop Hammarby forward feels both fun and exciting.”

The former Sweden international, who started his professional career in his home country with Malmo, announced he was leaving LA Galaxy after two years in Major League Soccer. In October, he teased fans with a tweet in which he said he was “coming back to Spain” — however, it turned out to be a stunt for a gambling company.

On Tuesday, he posted a video of a Hammarby shirt with his name on the back and a source with intimate knowledge of the situation told ESPN FC to “take it seriously.”

Ibrahimovic, 38, has yet to confirm whether he intends to keep playing football following his departure from MLS.

Hammarby chairman Richard von Yxkull said: “To get a person like Zlatan into the club, with the passion and winning mentality he stands for, feels right.

“It is too early to say anything in detail about how Zlatan can contribute to Hammarby, but there is clearly very great potential in the collaboration.”
