Zlatan on His Way to L.A.

Published: Thursday, 29 March 2018

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left Manchester United and is now a Los Angeles Galaxy player.

The move to the Galaxy is worth a relatively modest £1million-a-year and Ibrahimovic will travel to California for his unveiling next week.

The 36-year-old Swedish star has signed a contract for the rest of this season and could make his debut against new rivals LAFC on March 31.

Zlatan said his farewell on Instagram (below) and a full page ad in the Los Angeles Times on Friday will confirm his move to the Galaxy.

“Great things also come to an end and it is time to move on after two fantastic seasons with Manchester United. Thank you to the club, the fans, the team, the coach, the staff and everybody who shared with me this part of my history.”

Although the Galaxy may suggest otherwise,the move effectively brings to a close the top-flight career of a striker who has also played for Barcelona, Ajax, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and both Milan clubs.
