Zlatan has said his goodbyes in Manchester and will now head to LA, where he is on a two-year, $3 million deal. He scored 28 goals last season for Manchester United last season before going down with a knee injury, which helped hasten his departure from England. Zlatan has also played for Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona and PSG. He has won 11 league titles and scored 421 goals in his club career. He is Sweden's all-time leading scorer.
LA Galaxy has been a popular destination for high-profile international players to play in MLS, having hosted David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and currently the Dos Santos brothers.
