Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals for Man United
Ibrahimovic joined Premier League side Manchester United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-German in 2016. The Swedish international has scored 29 goals in 53 games and was instrumental in Manchester United Europa Cup glory.
Knee injury halted Zlatan's scoring spree
The 36-year-old showed no signs of ageing and was in red-hot form since joining Manchester United. However, a cruciate ligament injury in April halted the juggernaut. After a lengthy spell on the sidelines, Zlatan made a return in November but did not look sharp. He hasn't played for United since the draw against Burnley on December 26.
Manchester United terminate Zlatan's contract
The Red Devils have agreed to terminate his contract, which ran through the end of June. The official statement read, "Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future."
Zlatan is the latest 30+ superstar to join LA Galaxy
Zlatan now becomes the latest 30+ star to join LA Galaxy. The club shot to fame when they signed England midfielder David Beckham in a groundbreaking move in 2007. Since then, they have gone on to sign Republic of Ireland legend Robbie Keane, England and Chelsea icon Ashley Cole and Liverpool's greatest Steven Gerrard.
