Zlatan To Light Up LA?

Swedish football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become the latest Premier League old-boy to join LA Galaxy after completing his move to Major League Soccer.

The 36-year-old forward, who has enjoyed a glittering career in European football, was announced via a full-page advert in Friday’s edition of the LA Times newspaper.

Ibrahimovic arrives on a free transfer following the mutual termination of his contract with Manchester United, with whom he spent 20 months, scoring 29 times in 53 appearances.

He won the EFL Cup and Europa League with the Old Trafford club, after joining from Paris St-Germain in July 2016.

However, the former Barcelona, Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus and Inter Milan forward has played only seven times since damaging cruciate ligaments in April.

He joins a Galaxy club who made waves in world football when they lured David Beckham to the USA from Real Madrid. Since then, Premier League stars who’ve appeared for the club include Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole – who will be a team-mate of Ibrahimovic, after agreeing a new one-year deal with Galaxy ahead of the 2018 season.
