Zlatan leaves Manchester United

The mighty Zlatan not coy about carping in LA

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed for LA Galaxy a day after leaving Manchester United.

Ibrahimovic took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times, welcoming himself to the city with a simple message.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was described by LA Galaxy as "one of the winningest players of all time" after completing a move to the Major League Soccer club.

"If I want, I am there [the World Cup], if I don't want, I am not there, but one thing a time". For me, there was no question about it. Galaxy was the team, and I chose them.

Ibrahimovic could make his LA Galaxy debut against local rivals Los Angeles FC on March 31.

"Dear Los Angeles, You're welcome", said the back page of the Los Angeles Times sports section, with Ibrahimovic's signature at the bottom of the mostly blank sheet.


Ibrahimovic appeared in 53 matches over his near two full seasons with Manchester United, scoring 29 goals and providing 10 assists.

According to SI.com, the player has cut his stay at United short to join MLS club LA Galaxy, where he will reportedly stay until the end of the 2019 season.

"I did not know that several Swedes went to MLS", Ibrahimovic told SportExpressen at the start of this month. When I play and when I do not play it is rumors. My first objective is to play football and do what I'm good at.

Zlatan has had a glittering playing career, winning league titles in four countries and enjoying prominent spells with the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Barcelona, Ajax, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

"Adding one of the finest goal scorers in this sport's history to our roster will tremendously help our club in the hunt for a sixth MLS Cup", LA Galaxy coach Sigi Schmid said.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed that he is quiting Manchester United via an emotional post on Social Media saying farewell to Old Trafford fans ahead of his move to LA Galaxy. The team announced the veteran striker's arrival with a video that Zlatan will surely declare Oscar-worthy.
