    Los Angeles Galaxy have announced the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Manchester United.

    The 36-year-old, who has played only seven times for the Red Devils this season, confirmed his move to the MLS outfit via a full-page advert in the LA Times, with the Swedish international leaving Old Trafford by mutual consent on Thursday.

    “After being in Europe, winning 33 trophies, playing in the best teams in the world, playing with the best players in the world, I wanted to come to the US and play my game there,” the experienced centre-forward told the LA Times. “I wanted people to enjoy my game there and to win. And I chose the Galaxy to do that.”

    Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for the Premier League giants, but failed to recover from the serious knee injury that ended his 2016-17 campaign, and was allowed to leave Theatre of Dreams on a free transfer.

    Ibrahimovic could play his LA Galaxy debut on March 31 when they face local rivals Los Angeles FC.
