SI - Multiple sources say that the LA Galaxy have recently extended an offer to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one that would bring him to the club this summer and pay him what would easily be the highest salary in MLS history.
Ibrahimovic is 35 years old, but he has been fantastic for Manchester United this season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions. Ibrahimovic’s United contract runs out at the end of this season, so it would be a free transfer, but there’s a possibility he could extend for up to two more seasons with the club.
As far as getting players in their prime goes, this is not going to help the MLS get seen as anything except a retirement league. But in terms of getting the best talent in the world on our own soil, Zlatan is continuing to prove he is near the top of the world in productivity and goal scoring even at his age.
This would be a massive move for the brand of the MLS more so than the international respect, and would sell out stadiums the same way Beckham did at his start. The Galaxy have had stars like Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard, and David Beckham come through their ranks, so let's hope they can pull this one off as well.
Fox Deportes has reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will join the LA Galaxy at the conclusion of the Premier League season with Manchester United.
