The striker has been linked with several moves since his release from Manchester United, but there’s reason to believe he could be MLS-bound
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s clothing brand may have confirmed the striker is on his way to Los Angeles.
Although the 35-year-old is a free agent after being released from Manchester United, he will be out of action for several months as he continues his recovery from a cruciate ligament injury.
Ibrahimovic’s agent, Mino Raiola, said there have been many offers for him, including from MLS amid links to the LA Galaxy and 2018 expansion side Los Angeles FC.
And it appears he could be on his way to the United States, if the clothing line A-Z’s tweet is anything to go by.
“The journey continues,” the account for the sportswear company that Ibrahimovic founded tweeted, with a picture of him that read “Welcome to Los Angeles” in LAFC’s colours.

The company make clear on their website that they do not have physical shops, suggesting the iconic attacker is indeed set to continue his journey in California.
The former Juventus, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain star damaged his cruciate ligament in the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht in April.
The injury prompted United to hold back on triggering an option to extend his contract for another year, allowing him to leave at the end of the season.
He finished the campaign with 28 goals from 46 appearances in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s side.
