Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be about to leave Man United and top level football for good

The 36-year-old Swede nearly signed with this club in April but the deal was postponed because of his horrific knee injury

Yes that’s right people, ESPN are reporting that Ibra is very close to agreeing a deal to move to LA Galaxy and leaving Man United.

It hasn’t quite worked out for United ever since he picked up that terrible knee injury last April on the way to winning the Europa League.

The club signed Romelu Lukaku as his replacement and Zlatan has made just seven appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side this season.

Since United signed Alexis Sanchez further bolstering their attacking options, the Swede is facing even less game time.

The story claims that the talks between LA Galaxy and the player are the ‘furthest along they ever have been’.

From 40-yard bicycle kicks to outrageous backheel flicks we have seen Ibrahimovic treat top-level football as a personal playground for the past decade and a half.

You name a glamorous top flight across Europe and you can be pretty sure Zlatan will have played their.

The list includes; Juventus, AC Milan, Inter, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Ajax and United.

It seems right that he could be following in the footsteps of another footballing hero David Beckham by moving to LA.
