Real Madrid are considering making a shock move to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic from LA Galaxy in the January transfer window, according to Cadena Cope.

The European champions bolstered their attacking ranks in the summer by bringing Mariano back from Lyon to fill the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Juventus.

However, Cope says that Real Madrid want to sign another No. 9 in January after Julen Lopetegui's side only narrowly avoided setting a new club-record goal drought, with Marcelo's goal in Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Levante ending a run of 480 minutes without scoring in all competitions.

Spanish radio station Cadena Cope reports that Ibrahimovic could be the surprise candidate to provide a short-term fix to those issues, and that the 37-year-old forward is also keen on making the move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Cope points out that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez made a similar move in January 2011 when signed Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from Manchester City.

Ibrahimovic spent a year in Spain earlier in his career, scoring 16 goals in La Liga for Barcelona in the 2009-10 season. However, he returned to Serie A the following year with a loan move to AC Milan after falling out with coach Pep Guardiola at the Camp Nou.

The Swedish forward has also been linked with a return to Manchester United, where he spent two seasons before making his move to Major League Soccer earlier this year.
