We have no cash but you can win the Bundesliga! - Hertha makes cheeky Ibrahimovic offer

Hertha Berlin has made former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic an offer he may very well be able to refuse.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could have a swift route back into football after his impending release from Manchester United with Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin.

Ibrahimovic's departure from Old Trafford after a single season at the club was confirmed on Friday with the release of United's retained list.

The 35-year-old hit 17 Premier League goals in 28 appearances after agreeing a one-year deal at the club and was also on target in the Community Shield victory over Leicester City and United's EFL Cup final win against Southampton.

But after suffering a serious knee ligament damage in United's Europa League quarter-final second-leg win over Anderlecht, an Old Trafford renewal looked unlikely.

Ibrahimovic, who has also been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League or MLS, will not be short of offers and has already been given an opportunity to join a new club.

Bundesliga side Hertha playfully tweeted on Friday: "No contract at @ManUtd - we've great fans, but still no cash: BUT YOU CAN WIN @bundesliga_de for 1st time. Think about it @Ibra_official"

Ibrahimovic won his first league title with Ajax in the 2001-02 Eredivisie before claiming more winners' medals in Serie A with Inter, in LaLiga with Barcelona and in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain in a glittering career.

The former Sweden international has collected a total of 11 league titles in his career and Hertha may be hoping he sees the Bundesliga as a challenge he can still tackle, although its offer is almost certainly not a serious one.
