Zlatan Ibrahimovic, LA Galaxy in Talks Again, Nearing Deal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed a deal to join LA Galaxy and has already signed a contract with the MLS side, reports say.

Ibrahimovic, whose contract expires this summer, is now injured and is expected to return next month but has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy.

The LA Galaxy are inching closer to signing Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

Earlier it was reported that the former Sweden worldwide and captain will receive an annual salary of $7.7 million at LA Galaxy and become the highest-paid player in the MLS.

Ibrahimovic returned too early from a serious knee injury, and the decision was taken to give the 36-year-old more time to recover.

Over the course of his illustrious career, Ibrahimovic has played for AC Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Ajax before joining Man United in the summer of 2016.


Ibrahimovic is out of contract at the end of the season, having previously signed a one-year deal at United.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will not stand in the Swede's way if he wishes to leave Old Trafford, and those in Los Angeles are hoping that a mooted deal for a modern day icon can be pushed through.

But since coming back to the club he has looked a shadow of the player who set the Premier League alight on the way to finishing United's leading scorer last season.

Schmid said: "There's been a lot of talk about it in the past and it's something that maybe gets opened up again".

"I don't know what's there".

"I don't know if it is going to happen but he's a legend, one of the best strikers in history of soccer", said Dos Santos. "Right now, it's all rumours". The MLS club expressed interest previous year before Ibrahimovic went down with a knee injury in April.
