La Galaxy welcome Ibrahimovic

  • Jose Mourinho says an 'awful injury' denied Ibrahimovic two great years with Manchester United

"Coming to play in the United States, it is only fitting for me to join the most successful team in Major League Soccer, the LA Galaxy", said Ibrahimović.

The advertisement published in the LA times which announced Zlatan Ibrahimovic's arrival in the USA, showcased the magnificent striker posing in white LA Galaxy kit with a message that could only have been on his transfer story.

He paid for an entire page in the LA Times, which was then published largely blank except for the simple message: "Dear Los Angeles, you're welcome".

There was no official confirmation of the signing from the Major League Soccer team, however Dan Beckerman, the president of entertainment giant AEG, which operates the Galaxy, told the paper that he expected a lot of the former Swedish global. Manager Jose Mourinho has not used him since a Premier League match against Burnley on December 26.

Ibrahimovic left United having scored 29 goals in 53 games.

Ibrahimovic's campaign was brought a premature end last season, as he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in late February.


Ibrahimovic spent the last two years with Manchester United, but the club agreed to terminate his deal.

As the full-page advert might suggest, L.A. Galaxy are set for an exciting year with Zlatan among their ranks.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is "ready to go" after confirming his decision to join Los Angeles Galaxy.

The contract will make him the fourth-best-paid player on the Galaxy roster but it still represents a significant drop from Ibrahimovic's deal with Manchester United, which paid him approximately £125,000 per week.

And with less than four months remaining on his Old Trafford contract, sources told ESPN FC that United manager Jose Mourinho has allowed Ibrahimovic to leave now in order to move to MLS. I'm not there for something else.

The new kids of the block have won the first two matches in MLS, with coach Bob Bradley and the likes of Carlos Vela being embraced by the LA football community. Ibrahimovic was never going to be a player for the long-term at United, but he did pretty in the short-term for the men from Manchester.
