LA Galaxy have had “conversations” with Manchester United striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, over a summer move, their former General Manager, Alexi Lalas, has revealed.
Ibrahimovic has been in superb form for United this season, following his move from Paris Saint-Germain last year as a free agent.
The Swede has scored 26 goals in all competitions.
However, he is out of contract at the end of this season and is yet to agree a new deal with the Red Devils.
Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live, Lalas said: “There have been conversations and, I think, a relationship for some time regarding this possible move.
“The Galaxy are Major League Soccer’s ‘super club’. They do big, bold things. They have sexy signings, that’s what they have built themselves as, that’s what they sell themselves as, and this type of signing would fall right into play with that.
“The pitch to Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not just that you get to come to Major League Soccer and they will pay you a lot of money.
“It is also that you get to expand that brand in a market that continues to get bigger and bigger.
“I think they do have a chance (of signing Ibrahimovic). Whether it’s this summer or maybe a year from now I still think there is going to be an interest.”
