Manchester United Football Club signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic last summer, in what will go down as one of the best free transfers in club history. However, according to Fox Sports Spanish edition, the 35-year-old’s time at Old Trafford could be short-lived.
They say that the influential striker will be heading Stateside this coming summer, with a move to the LA Galaxy in the offing. The Swede, who has scored twenty-six goals for the Red Devils could well make his return from suspension against Everton tonight.
However, if all things go well, Ibrahimovic may only have 14 more games left to play in the famous Manchester United jersey, with the Swede seemingly interested in following in the footsteps of David Beckham with a move to Los Angeles.
If this move happens, I’d be absolutely gutted, to say the least. Ibrahimovic is a guy who has come in and already turned into the father-figure of this team. He’s scored important goals, including that excellent brace in the EFL Cup final, and he’s really been an example to follow for the rest of the squad.
Replacing him wouldn’t be easy, which says a lot given the fact that he’s only been here for less than twelve months. Honestly, we’ve been so lucky to have him wear our jersey, because he is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic footballers of his generation.
At the end of the day, if he wants to move on then there is absolutely nothing we can do. With that said, I’m sure Jose Mourinho would love to keep hold of him.
