MLS outfit La Galaxy have told Manchester United's forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic that they are willing to make him the highest paid player in MLS history if he decides to join the Los Angeles-based side from Manchester United during this summer transfer window. Zlatan Ibrahimovic agreed to join Manchester United on a one-year contract last summer with an option of extending his contract with the Red Devil's. But for Ibrahimovic, he's yet to agree to a contract extension with the club. So far, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored a total of 26 goals for Manchester United this season.

Ibrahimovic's transfer speculation to MLS

It is unknown what contract length the three time Major League Soccer Champions LA Galaxy would be prepared to offer the Swede veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the Los Angeles team feels it has a realisic chance of bringing the veteran point-man to MLS. With Zlatan's current contract expiring this summer, Galaxy could sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier before moving to Major League Soccer during the summer transfer window -- that is what LA Galaxy did with David Beckham in 2007, a move that was published in January before his contract expiration with Real Madrid on the 30th of June. Nevertheless, Manchester United will certainly seek other ideas for this unmatured transfer speculation.

Following their recent League Cup final win against Southampton, in which United's marksman Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted the late winner for his team, United's manager Jose Mourinho said that whilst he would not persuade the forward to remain at the club, he thought Manchester United fans would be ready to camp in the Swede veteran's garden in a bid to keep him at the club.

Recent money spilling transfers to the MLS

In 2016, Ricardo “Kaka” was the highest paid player in Major League Soccer, with a reported annual salary of about $7.16m from MLS outfit Orlando City SC. LA Galaxy paid former England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerard about $6M last summer. Steven Gerard has since retired from active soccer.
