Foreign club plan to end Ibrahimovic's time at Man Utd after just one year

Major League Soccer is a well known draw for ageing footballers looking for a change of lifestyle and one last big payout before calling it a day.

Currently, the likes of Frank Lampard, Andrea Pirlo and Kaka are all plying their trade in the American division, enjoying their final playing days to varying degrees of success.

And it seems that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be on his way to joining them if the Los Angeles Galaxy get their way.

The 35-year-old penned a one-year deal with the Red Devils over the summer, and the Daily Mirror believes that the west coast club fancy their chances in being able to convince him to join them at the end of the current campaign.

The report claims that Galaxy are keen to distance themselves from signing so many ageing stars, but believe the opportunity to sign Ibrahimovic would potentially be a huge draw as his status within the game would make him a huge attraction.

However, if the move does go ahead it would come at the expense of Ibrahimovic's current United teammate Wayne Rooney. 

The England skipper had previously been on Galaxy's watch list, but given that he still has two years remaining on a £300,000-per-week deal at Old Trafford (with the option of a third) the Americans feel that they would stand a better chance of landing the former PSG forward.

Gone after a year?

Ibrahimovic also has the option to extend his deal by a further year, but given United's current woes it remains to be seen if he would even consider it.

He is also presently undergoing one of the most barren runs in front of goal in his career, having failed to find the net in any of his previous six outings.

The report claims that Zlatan has already fielded a number of big offers from clubs around the world, but with the opportunity to go and be a huge force in American soccer on the table, he may find it too difficult to turn down at this late stage of his career.
