Zlatan Ibrahimovic signs with LA Galaxy, report says

Ibrahimovic could face sanctions if found to be involved with the new betting company

Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists it is business as usual as he targets more success with new club LA Galaxy.

"Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan", read the caption on a social media video featuring Ibrahimovic and a lion.

Ibrahimovic, while in the latter stages of a glittering career, could have a similar impact. The ponytailed 36-year-old could capture the attention of the world's entertainment capital in a way that even David Beckham couldn't manage.

One major club trophy did elude him, though, as despite racking up league titles in four different countries, a move to America in the twilight of his career appears to end any ambition Ibrahimovic had to win the Champions League. "Move over to the USA, try the MLS". I chose Galaxy to do that. They didn't need to choose me.

"He's giving up a lot to come here", Beckerman told the LA Times. After previously stating that his aim was to eclipse Napoleon by crossing the Atlantic and conquering the States, the Swedish striker is now en route to Los Angeles and aiming for a spectacular debut on March 31 against LAFC ("El Tráfico") at an already sold out StubHub Center. "Wherever I went I won, so I am like Indiana Jones". I'm coming with this objective. I want to win.

The Swede bid his farewell to the Red Devils after the Premier League club terminated his contract under amicable conditions on Thursday. Zlatan needs sometimes very hard work on the muscle area that supports the knee that had the problem. He made only seven appearances for United while scoring only once, he played his last game for United against Burnley. Alongside fellow new acquisition Ola Kamara, the Galaxy now have arguably the best striker duo in the league.

However, because the Galaxy have already signed their designated players for the 2018 season, Ibrahimovic's salary will be limited to around $1.5 million (1.2 million euros) according to the Sports Illustrated report. "As the most successful club in Major League Soccer history, the LA Galaxy are the flawless fit for one of the most decorated soccer players in the sport's history".

Ibrahimovic's move also should energize the Galaxy, who will mix him into coach Sigi Schmid's intriguing collection of global talent.

The Swede had always been a target for Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy - and he now follows the likes of former England captains David Beckham and Steven Gerrard to the StubHub Center, where he will play alongside ex-Chelsea and Arsenal full-back Ashley Cole.
