LA Galaxy Showing Interest In Zlatan Ibrahimovic

MLS Team LA Galaxy have told Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic they are prepared to make him the highest paid player in MLS (Major League Soccer) history if the striker joins them from United this summer.

The 35-year-old only joined Manchester United on a one-year deal last summer.

There is an option for the former Barcelona forward to stay longer but while the club are desperate to keep the striker, the Swede is yet to agree.

In 2016, Brazilian veteran striker Kaka was the highest paid player in MLS, with a published annual fee from Jason Kreis side Orlando City club of $.167m (£5.89m).

LA Galaxy paid former Liverpool legend midfielder Steven Gerrard $6.1m (£5.01m) last season. The midfielder has since retired.

Following their EFL Cup final victory over Claude Puel side Southampton, when Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted United's late winner, coach Jose Mourinho said that while he would not beg the striker to stay at United, he thought Red Devil's fans would be willing to camp in the forward's garden in an attempt to persuade him.
