Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the greatest Sweedish soccer player of all-time and is now taking on a new challenge. Ibrahimovic most recently spent time with Manchester United and scored 29 goals in 53 appearances. The $90 million transfer purchase of Romelu Lukaku pretty much sidelined Ibrahimovic as the primary striker. Zlatan, 36, is now coming to the States! The LA Galaxy has landed the Swede on a two-year contract worth $3 million.

Sports Illustrated was the first to report the news:

The famous MLS franchise has been in discussions for Zlatan for two plus years now. The LA Galaxy will now pay Ibrahimovic $1.5 million per year which is the maximum allowed for using targeted allocation money. The Galaxy already has some lucrative contracts on the books that include Giovani dos Santos, Jonathan dos Santos, and Romain Alessandrini. The dos Santos haven’t performed like superstars per say but there is no question that if Zlatan brings top form to the league he will immediately become the best player in the league.

The MLS has done a great job of bringing aging talent from overseas to try to create buzz. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Andrea Pirlo, and David Villa also play in the MLS. The United States really needs to step up excitement for soccer on a domestic scale considering that the men’s national team didn’t even qualify for the World Cup. Speaking of the World Cup, Zlatan hasn’t closed the door on competing for the Swedish team come June. He hasn’t competed for the Swedish National Team since 2016 but the World Cup is definitely on a different scale of importance.

Ibrahimovic hasn’t played since December 26th because of an injury. It’s possible that Ibrahimovic will be ready by March 29th when the Galaxy plays the rival Los Angeles Football Club.
