MLS FOOTBALL CLUBS HOPING TO SIGN IBRAHIMOVIC

Major League Soccer sides are hoping to lure Zlatan Ibrahimovic to North America this summer.


The Swede left Manchester United as his contract ended after he picked up an injury. The free agent is in recovery for knee injury at the club’s training ground.

While the Red Devils have not ruled out re-signing the 35-year old on a short term basis, the likelihood is very low. Los Angeles sides LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC are reportedly keen on signing the former Barcelona, Milan and PSG striker.

The former Swede international is expected to make a decision on his next career move soon. There is a high chance that he would move to the MLS where he would end his illustrious career. He would have spent more time at Old Trafford but for the cruciate knee ligament injury he sustained against Anderlecht in a Europa League fixture in April.

He scored 28 goals in his debut season in England despite his age and concerns raised when he joined. LA FC franchise who are set to play their debut MLS football in 2018 are hoping Ibrahimovic would join them as their experienced star player. The sheer brilliance and proven record of the player would help him with the fans.

Also, the club wants to recruit another former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez due to the huge Mexican population in the city. Both stars are high profile and tested so the club wants them to help the club establish a decent profile in the league from the get-go. Hernandez’s contract with Bayern Leverkusen is set to lapse in 2018 so the club is hopeful of getting the 28-year old to see off his career there.
