Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly decided on his next club

Maybe his agent didn't get it quite right

There will be no shortage of interested parties now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a free agent.

The centre-forward’s time with Manchester United came to an end on Friday, when Premier League clubs handed in their lists of released players.

United’s had a solitary name on it – Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

After 28 goals in 46 appearances for the Red Devils, Ibrahimovic parted ways with the eighth club of his storied career.

An anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in a Europa League clash with Anderlecht in April cut short the 35-year-old’s debut season in the Premier League.

But, if reports in Spain are to be believed, Ibrahimovic is set to join club number nine.

According to Marca‘s Jose Felix Diaz, the Swedish powerhouse will sign for MLS side, LA Galaxy, when their season comes to an end.

Ibrahimovic will reportedly move to Los Angeles this summer and continue his rehabilitation before joining up with the club, which previously boasted the likes of David Beckham and Robbie Keane, early next year.

Suggestions had been made that the player would not entertain options outside of Europe, with his agent Mino Raiola insisting that approaches from China and the United States of America would come to nothing.

“He will play for one more year, maybe two,” Raiola said last year, via Manchester Evening News.

“There have been offers from clubs from many leagues, but he will remain in Europe 100 per cent.”

It’s not like a football agent to be dishonest.
