Los Angeles Galaxy and Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic are again in talks over a potential move. New annual rumors about Swedish striker. The Major League Soccer team had reportedly made contract offers to 36-years-old Ibrahimovic in each of the last two springs, only to have the player remain in Europe, where he plays for the Red Devils. But the transfer that brought Alexis Sanchez to United last week means greatly reduced playing time for Ibrahimovic, which could make a jump to MLS more attractive.
The Californian club expressed interest last year before Ibrahimovic went down with a knee injury in April. Galaxy coach Sigi Schmid has completely remade the team’s roster after watching the Galaxy struggled to its worst season in franchise history in 2017. But last week he said that more additions were expected. Ibrahimovic has played for AC Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, Juventus and Ajax before joining Man United in the summer of 2016 and MLS could be the right adventure for him. LA Galaxy are at their limit of three designated players, and it means the team would have to make another move to accommodate the kind of multimillion-dollar contract Ibrahimovich would require. In fact, Ibrahimovich is reportedly getting more than $300,000 per week on a contract that expires this season.
Los Angeles Galaxy attack at moment includes Mexico international Giovani Dos Santos, American Sebastian Lletget, French Romain Alessandrini and new acquisition Ola Kamara, who has scored 34 goals in his first two seasons in MLS, both spent with the Columbus Crew jersey. Ibrahimovic could be the right choice to revive the LA Galaxy after a disastrous season with 8 wins, 8 draws and 18 losses. And, above all, the last place in the Western Conference.
