AP sources: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to join LA Galaxy
Sources with knowledge of the deal say Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed a two-year contract with Major League Soccer to leave Manchester United and join the LA Galaxy.
The sources spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal had not been announced. The agreement was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
The 36-year-old forward is Sweden’s career scoring leader with 62 goals in 116 international appearances and is the first player to make Champions League appearances for seven teams.
He left Paris Saint-Germain for Manchester United ahead of the 2016-17 season but since injuring his right knee on April 20 last year has made just two starts and five substitute appearances, scoring his only goal Dec. 20 against Bristol City in the League Cup. Manager Jose Mourinho has not used him since a Premier League match against Burnley on Dec. 26.
