Ibrahimovic announces move to the Los Angeles Galaxy with typical swagger

Ibrahimovic announces move to the Los Angeles Galaxy with typical swagger

Though the MLS is a far cry from the competition of Europe's top leagues, Ibrahimovic, who has won league titles in the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France, retains the same determination to add to his incredible trophy haul with the United States' most successful club.

The Swede legend scored 28 goals in the 2016-17 season with the team going on to win the Europa league.

After a terrific debut season with United, the 36-year-old has struggled this term with injuries and hadn't featured for Jose Mourinho's side since Boxing Day.

In an interview with the MLS, Ibrahimovic revealed: "I met David when I played in PSG and he talked a lot about Galaxy, the experience he had in America, he was all positive".

The club announced their new signing on Twitter with a video in which Ibrahimovic was wearing his new team's jersey. I haven't played games in a while and that is what I miss now.

The giant 6ft 4ins tall (1.95m) striker has an ego to match his towering physique but has backed up his boasts by collecting an incredible 31 winners' medals in spells with Ajax, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and United.

Ibrahimovic will occupy an worldwide roster spot with the Galaxy.

The $1.3 trillion measure incorporates all twelve annual Appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 2018 (i.e., current year). Leahy said. "We wanted to include DACA and include them in this bill...[but] the Democrats would not do it".

"After being in Europe, winning 33 trophies, playing in the best teams in the world, playing with the best players in the world, I wanted to come to the US and play my game there", Ibrahimovic told the LA Times.

Beckham signed a five-year contract to join LA Galaxy in the summer of 2007, worth a reported $6.5million a year.

The Galaxy made a serious pitch for Ibrahimovic last year, but he elected to spend another year in Manchester.

Ibrahimovic will share playing time up front with Ola Kamara, the Norwegian striker acquired from Columbus in January.

Ibrahimovic must learn to play alongside Mexican forward Giovani Dos Santos, who has shown inconsistent flashes of brilliance since leaving La Liga for the Galaxy in 2015, and his younger brother, midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos.

The Swede could wait to make his first start against Los Angeles next month in what is the MLS' newest derby.

The deal makes Ibrahimovic the latest in a long line of ageing stars who have been lured to America by the Galaxy following David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and former England worldwide Ashley Cole.
