Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move to the Los Angeles Galaxy. Club president Chris Klein does not think that Zlatan is going to the United States right now.
“I think he wants to stay in Europe,” Klein says to the club’s website.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 35, is currently club-bloc since his contract with Manchester United expired. He is hunted by a number of clubs and one of them is the Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 35-year-old has been offered a dream pay, which would make him the MLS best paid player ever. According to a survey with the players in the league, a majority would have seen Zlatan in MLS more than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Now the club has an ace in the rock star, writes Los Angeles Times crownist Kevin Baxter.
“MLS and Southern California can offer Zlatan something that no other place in the world can do – the chance to become a Hollywood star,” he writes.
An Italian outlet reported that Zlatan had rejected a bid from the Los Angeles Galaxy, to continue their time in the English Premier League. But now that José Mourinho bought Romelu Lukaku to the club, and Zlatan is club-bloc, the doors are always open for a move to the United States.
The dream pay that the MLS club has offered the striker is an annual salary of SEK 165 million. That’s more than the 64 million crowns that Brazilian Kaka earns in Orlando every year.
– It would be sick. Such a profile would be good for the league, says an anonymous player.
