Zlatan Ibrahimovic, LA Galaxy confirm Swedish star's move to Major League Soccer
Mar 24, 2018, 12:33
The move comes less than 24 hours after Manchester United terminated Zlatan's contract on immediate basis amid intense speculations that he was on his way to Major League Soccer.
His form was rewarded with an extension of his contract for a second season, but the £75 million ($105 million) signing of Romelu Lukaku saw him slip down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Ibrahimovic, who scored 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden and won league titles in Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and France, is reported to have accepted $3 million over two season to play for Galaxy, a huge wage cut from his United salary.
Ibrahimovic has made only seven appearances for United this season after suffering a serious knee injury last April.
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. Once fit, though, United offered the striker another short-term deal.
Ibrahimovic's signature appeared at the bottom of the advert, along with the Galaxy logo.
"I wanted people to enjoy my game there and to win".
Ibrahimovic was no longer United's star forward, which was illustrated in the lack of playing time for the Swedish star once he had recovered from injury.
Ibrahimovic arrives on a free transfer following the mutual termination of his contract with Manchester United on Thursday.
Ibrahimovic insisted that he still has the hunger to succeed at the age of 36 and does not view the move to California as semi-retirement. "Zlatan's signing is evidence of AEG's and LA Galaxy's persistent, global pursuit of top athletes that lift the profile of our club, our league and our sport in this country".
Ibrahimovic has always been a target for Galaxy and his colleagues there will include the former Chelsea and Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole.
