Zlatan: Why I Joined LA Galaxy

Manchester United's Paul Pogba left with Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic, 36, played five games for United late a year ago after returning from knee surgery but he had no impact on its season.

Like David Beckham before him, he arrives in California to build a brand in the US and seems all too aware that he will be sprinkling star dust on the MLS.

"For me there was no question about it, Galaxy was the team - I chose them, they didn't have to chose me". They didn't need to choose me.

Ibrahimovic silenced any doubters over his ability to make the grade in England's Premier League even at the ripe old age of 35 last season, scoring 28 goals in 46 appearances to help United win the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League.

United terminated Ibrahimovic's contract on Thursday, with the Sweden icon expected to agree a deal with MLS side LA Galaxy to prolong his distinguished career.

"I want to accomplish as much as possible, " Ibrahimovic said.

Upon departing PSG in 2016, he famously quipped, "I came like a king, left like a legend". He's made it clear he's coming here to win championships. I think it's in my DNA that I'm winning trophies. Manager Jose Mourinho has not used him since a Premier League match against Burnley on December 26.

Collections of his greatest quotes are widespread on the internet: "I can't help but laugh at how flawless I am", he is widely reported to have once said.

"The more I play, the better it will be".

"I'm like a little child who you give candy to for the first time and he's looking for the candy all the time". Without intending to be disrespectful towards the league, players that have gone there have usually gone off the radar, nearly as though they have retired from the game.

Ibrahimovic also showed his motivation in the financial aspects of his move.

Ibrahimovic has signed a two-year contract in a deal worth a reported $3 million.

Ibrahimovic will occupy an worldwide roster spot with the Galaxy.

Once viewed as being one of the best three players in the world alongside Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Madrid's Ronaldo, his move to PSG saw him slide out of that bracket.

Ibrahimovic also confirmed he hasn't ruled out a return to the Swedish national team for the World Cup this summer despite retiring from the global game in 2016, saying that "the door will always be open".

However, because the Galaxy have already signed their designated players for the 2018 season, Ibrahimovic's salary will be limited to around $1.5 million according to the Sports Illustrated report. Get to know the city.
