Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been told he’s played his last game for Manchester United with a move to MLS supposedly in the works and due to go through later this week.

According to ESPN FC, LA Galaxy are the likeliest contenders at the moment, having been consistently linked to Ibrahimovic over the past few months.

Sources have told [us] that United manager Jose Mourinho has allowed Ibrahimovic to leave now in order to sign for an MLS club.

The 36-year-old has just four months left on his contract having last appeared for United back in December, when he managed 45 minutes in the 2-2 draw against Burnley.

The season prior he proved an integral part of the team, scoring 28 goals in 46 appearances before succumbing to an horrendous knee ligament injury in April 2017.

However, since returning to the fold, Ibrahimovic has found himself usurped as United’s first-choice striker by Romelu Lukaku and has struggled to make any kind of meaningful impact, restricted to seven appearances and just the one goal in the 2017/18 campaign to date.

Galaxy […] are leading contenders to sign the striker, who is determined to continue his career after returning from a serious knee injury.

To that end, the man himself recently stated that he hasn’t fully ruled out the possibility of reversing his international retirement to represent Sweden at the 2018 World Cup.

As ever with Zlatan, only time will tell if the bravado has any footing in reality…
