Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already written his name on the hearts of the Manchester United faithful, but he may be on his way out of the Old Trafford club sooner than later.
Ibrahimovic has been United’s best player this season without a doubt, scoring 26 goals in all competitions including his brace in the EFL Cup final which helped United lift the trophy.
The 35-year old has a one-year contract at Old Trafford which is set to expire in the summer. Although there is a clause to extend his contract by an additional year, that contract is yet to be signed. With reports coming in that LA Galaxy are interested and ready to price him away from Old Trafford, the Swede may be tempted to seek new adventures.
The BBC reports that MLS sources believe that Zlatan can have the same impact on the league as David Beckham had when he moved from Real Madrid to LA Galaxy in 2007. The Californians are even reported to be ready to make Zlatan the highest-paid player in MLS history.
Ibrahimovic is set to serve a three-match domestic ban following his elbow on Tyrone Mings in United’s 1-1 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday but he would be available to start in Thursday’s Europa League last-16 first-leg tie with Russian side Rostov.
