Which MLS team would best suit Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Published Add your comment

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has certainly played his trade in several countries including Italy, Holland and France, where he is currently contracted to Paris Saint-Germain.

But after a long spell in Europe, the Swedish forward has made plans to end his career in the United States of America, according to ESPN, and even more so Aftonbladet who state that the 33-year-old has travelled the Atlantic to sort out a Visa.

This has pricked up the ears of several MLS teams. But which side would the veteran best suit?

The Big Boys

LA Galaxy would obviously be the number one choice for Ibra, wouldn't it? Well, their recent form would suggest otherwise as the Californian side have only taken two victories in their opening six fixtures. None the less, players such as Robbie Keane and Gyasi Zardes are prosperous strike partners for the forward and could persuade the Swede to move to Los Angeles.

Seattle Sounders who were beaten narrowly on Sunday night by LA may be Ibrahimovic's second choice. Like their previous opponents, they have not had the most appealing start to the season and have won the same number of games despite playing a fixture less thus far. Prolific strikers, Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey, offer yet another tasteful advert to the renowned hit man. Choosing between the two sides may be a difficult affair.

The Great North?

If the 33-year-old is looking to be a little more adventurous and give himself a challenge, he could opt to join Vancouver Whitecaps whose impressive start to the season could persuade anyone to make the switch.

Although in later weeks, their title hopes may seem a little more distant, Ibrahimovic should not be put off by the quality at BC Place with starlets such as Kekuta Manneh and Octavio Rivero currently on-board.

D.C. United had a successful season in 2014, winning the Eastern conference with ease. It seems as though the Washington based club have started off this campaign a little more turbulent than they would have hoped, but a point against New York Red Bulls and a late winner against Orlando City SC can only boost the confidence of the capital club. All in all could be a good way to lure in one of the world's most fiercest forwards.

I struggle to see the former Barcelona man anywhere else, although New York Red Bulls would probably be a club lingering in his mind as they look for prolific replacements for Thierry Henry and Tim Cahil who departed in the off-season.
