Transfer rumors: LA Galaxy reportedly nearing deal with Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Freda Brock | 15 July, 2017, 22:05

Galaxy coach Curt Onalfo told the Press Association the club is always looking to bring in great players but declined to specifically address the Ibrahimovic rumors.

Now recuperating from a serious knee injury, there has also been talk that Manchester United could offer him a new deal if he can recover in time for January.

That announcement was originally thought to relate to a return to United, who released Ibrahimovic after rejecting the chance to activate a 12-month extension to his one-year deal at Old Trafford.

The Swede has said he will make a "big announcement" about his future soon.

However, Ibrahimovic is being aggressively pursued by LA Galaxy, who wanted him when he left PSG past year, and are prepared to make him the highest paid player in the MLS. "We're going to play 45 minutes with 11, then they rest and we play the other 45 minutes with other men".

Ibrahimovic is coming off of an ACL injury but is expected to be back in time for the start of next MLS season.

The 35-year-old scored 28 goals in 46 appearances for Manchester United during the 2016-17 campaign, but he missed the final stages of the season after picking up a serious knee injury.

Galaxy - home to former England, Chelsea and Arsenal full-back Ashley Cole as well as Giovani dos Santos - are eighth in the Western Conference, two points adrift of the play-off places.

During his only season with United, according to Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football, Ibrahimovic earned a basic wage of £367,640-per-week and was also entitled to a goal bonus worth £2.86m.
