Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks likely to have played his last game for Manchester United, with reports suggesting that he will be on the move as early as this week.
The Swedish striker has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time now, and, according to multiple sources, he will be leaving the club imminently. Although there has been no concrete suggestion to his next club as yet, MLS-based side LA Galaxy are believed to be in the driving seat to sign the 36-year-old.
Indeed, the LA Times have reported that the deal to take the former PSG man to the US has already been completed:

Ibrahimovic enjoyed a prolific first season in the Premier League, scoring 28 goals in 46 games and helping Jose Mourinho’s side win the EFL Cup and Europa League before his campaign was cut short by a serious ACL injury in April.
Having initially been released at the end of that season, Zlatan did enough to convince Man United to hand him a new one-year deal – this despite the fact that he faced the prospect of missing the first half of the season through the same injury.
He returned to action in November, but his second year in England has not gone at all to plan. In all, he has started just one match this season – the 2-1 EFL Cup defeat to Bristol City – and has not played a single minute of competitive action since the Premier League clash with Burnley on December 26th.
Man United manager Jose Mourinho is not believed to be standing in Ibrahimovic’s way as he he nears the Old Trafford exit, and the report suggests that an official announcement regarding the former Swedish international’s future could be made before the week is out.
