Major League Soccer could be Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s next venture in football with the Manchester United star’s agent currently in the United States to discuss an offer from LA Galaxy, according to Metro.
Upon arriving only on a 12-month contract at Old Trafford last summer, the giant Swede always kept his options open for the 2017/18 campaign and interest from several MLS clubs, especially LA Galaxy, might have caught his eye.
Ibra’s agent Mino Raiola has been in Los Angeles for the past few days to discuss the proposal MLS franchises have tabled, but it doesn’t reportedly match the one million euro monthly salary currently the striker earns in England.
Manchester United have always expressed their willingness to renew Ibrahimovic’s deal but in reality, the player himself holds his fate in his own hands, and a move to the Far East is believed to be ruled out yet again despite a 30m euro, two-year contract offered by the Chinese Super League.
Now the question is whether the United star feels he has conquered the Premier League after just one season.
The Red Devils are most likely to miss out on the title but the 35-year-old attacker has achieved a brilliant tally of 15 league goals so far and helped his team to land their first major trophy of the Mourinho era with the winner in the EFL Cup final last month, while providing enough needle to Manchester City boss and old adversary Pep Guardiola.
Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic took part in training with his United team-mates ahead of the Europa League tie with Russian team Rostov.
The Swede is at present serving a three-match domestic ban for elbowing Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings but is free to play in Europe.
