Manchester United have confirmed that they’ve agreed to terminate Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract four months early, thus freeing the veteran striker up to complete a move to Los Angeles Galaxy.

The 36-year-old has played just seven times since returning from the knee knack that prematurely ended his 2016/17 campaign.

According to Sports Illustrated, Ibrahimovic has already agreed a two-year, $3million deal with Galaxy and will be included in their squad for the upcoming derby against newly-formed rivals LAFC on 31st March.

All that was left was for United to wave Ibrahimovic off into the sunset, which they did with a statement on their official website:

Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future.

The Swede reciprocated the feeling with an Instagram post, in which he lamented all “great things coming to an end” before thanking everybody at United for their support over the past two seasons.

And so, Zlatan’s great Premier League adventure ends in something of a fizzle. It’s just a shame he didn’t make the move earlier in his career, really.

What might have been, eh?
