Manchester United confirm termination of Zlatan Ibrahimovic contract

Manchester United confirm termination of Zlatan Ibrahimovic contract

Zlatan Ibrahimovic took up an entire page in the LA Times to announce his move to LA Galaxy from Manchester United.

The Swede's Red Devils contract has been terminated with immediate effect as he looks to reboot his career in America.

United agreed to an early termination of his contract, which was due to expire in the summer after 20 months at the club.

Ibrahimovic, joined Manchester United from Paris Saint Germain and lifted three trophies in his maiden season at Old Trafford, but was limited to a single appearance this season due to a awful knee injury.

Ibrahimovic has certainly earned a wind down to his career, too, having played at the top level for almost 15 years with the likes of Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.

Earlier this month the United boss admitted he expected the striker to leave at the end of the season.

Ibrahimovic's departure from Old Trafford nearly certainly brings to a close one of the most decorated European club careers of all time.

The club released the following statement on Thursday afternoon... Closing down on a glorious career in Europe, Ibrahimovic's dream of winning the league title in England remained unfulfilled but he will aim to create a legacy with LA Galaxy.

After a largely frustrating season at Old Trafford, where he was troubled by injuries and limited to only seven appearances, Ibrahimovic says he was ready for action.

It's official: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer a Manchester United player.

Ibrahimovic last played for United on December 26, when he aggravated a knee injury in a game against Burnley.

Ibrahimovic joins Ashley Cole and Giovani dos Santos to make his new club one of the front-runners for success.

Ibrahimovic told the LA Times: "After being in Europe, winning 33 trophies, playing in the best teams in the world, I wanted to come to the U.S. and play my game there".

Rashford wrote on Twitter that Ibrahimovic "helped me become a better player for years to come", while Pogba wrote: "You'll be missed Lion, wish you all the best".

The new kids of the block have won the first two matches in MLS, with coach Bob Bradley and the likes of Carlos Vela being embraced by the LA football community.
