Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves Manchester United, ready to Join LA Galaxy

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for Manchester United

Swedish soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic after signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

His arrival in Los Angeles was announced with stereotypical swagger as a full-page advert in the LA Times read simply: "Dear Los Angeles, You're welcome". Nevertheless, it was a high figure for someone who played just 103 minutes of league football in 2017-18.

The Galaxy have not released deals of Ibrahimovic's transfer but Sports Illustrated have reported that the forward has inked a two-year deal worth $3 million.

The ad will have cost Ibrahimovic in the region of £19,000.

The arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January and the form of Romelu Lukaku have made it more hard for Ibrahimovic to regain his place and, with question marks over his fitness and his contract ticking down, the time appeared right for a move.

Former England global Ashley Cole is the club's current captain.

Many predicted that would be the end of Ibrahimovic's United sojourn, but the Swede defied the doubters in August by signing a new one-year deal.

He left Paris Saint-Germain for Manchester United ahead of the 2016-17 season but since injuring his right knee on April 20 has made just two starts and five substitute appearances, scoring his only goal December 20 against Bristol City in the League Cup.


The 36-year-old, Sweden's record scorer with 62 goals in 116 games, has been linked with a move to the U.S. for some time as he looks to write another chapter in his glittering club career.

Ibrahimovic is expected to arrive in LA next week, on either Wednesday and Thursday.

"Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future".

As well as delivering on the pitch, Ibrahimovic's larger-than-life persona has delighted fans wherever he has played.

His only goal of the campaign came in United's 2-1 EFL Cup defeat to Bristol City - a disappointing return after he netted 28 times last term.

Ibrahimovic picked up an injury during the 2-2 draw with Burnley and has been out of action since.

Ibrahimovic, though, was never likely to fade into retirement quietly.

The road to recovery from that serious injury was always going to be tough.
