Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be made the highest paid footballer in the history of MLS as LA Galaxy are keen to sign the Swede this summer, according to reports.
The 35-year old is in sensational form in his first season at Old Trafford as he scored 26 goals so far this season and have played a huge role in the success of Manchester United. He has helped them win EFL Cup final almost single handedly as he scored two goals in the crunch game.
However, there has been a lot of uncertainty over his future as Manchester United have only offered him a one year deal with an option to extend it to another year when he moved from Paris last summer.
Jose Mourinho and the club hierarchy are keen to exercise the option but the striker has remained coy on his future as he is yet to commit his future to the club.
Daily Telegraph claim that MLS outfit LA Galaxy are ready to swoop for the big Swede as they are willing to offer him a massive £11million-a-year deal which he is currently earning with the Red Devils.
But Manchester United are convinced that they can ensure Zlatan to stay with the club for at least one more year before he makes the next step in his illustrious career.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was recently handed a three game by FA for his violent conduct against Mings in the Premier League clash against Burnley as the Swede can only take part in Europa League ties against FC Rostov. He will also miss the key game against Chelsea in FA Cup on Monday night which could hamper United’s chances of progressing in the prestigious cup.
It still remains to be seen whether Manchester United can keep Zlatan at the club as the striker can leave to any club in Europe or across the world, with him still being at the peak of his powers despite his age.
