Pavel Nedved claims that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and would like to see him return to Juventus.

Juventus legend Pavel Nedved believes that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is as good as Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

The former Czech Republic international, who now works as a director at the Italian champions, also says that he would like the Paris Saint-Germain striker to return to Turin.

"I won't hide the fact that I like Ibrahimovic," he told TV show Undici. "I consider him to be one of the three best players in the world, at the level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He can change a team for the better. Who wouldn't want him? I'd like him for sure."

Ibrahimovic played for Juventus for two years from 2004 until 2006.
