Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves LA Galaxy with a humorous message for fans on social media. The Swede striker is linked to clubs in Italy.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has won silverware in every European club he has played in his career. However, despite scoring 53 goals in 58 matches, he failed to guide LA Galaxy to a podium finish. Regardless, the Swede striker entertained thoroughly and he is quite aware of it.
After two seasons in the MLS, Ibrahimovic has decided to bring the curtains down on his football career in the West and will likely make his return to European football. His contract expires in December making him a free agent available for clubs to snap come January.

The confirmation of his leaving came from Zlatan himself when he posted a statement on his social media. However, the post was laden with typical Zlatanism and left many in splits. The ex-Barcelona and PSG striker wrote:
“I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you @lagalaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans – you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues…Now go back to watch baseball.”

“We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer,” said LA Galaxy’s president, Chris Klein. “Since his arrival in 2018, Zlatan has positively influenced the sport of soccer in Los Angeles. We are grateful for his work ethic and passion. We thank Zlatan for his professionalism and immeasurable impact on the Los Angeles community and the soccer community in North America as a whole.”
Zlatan has given no indication of where his future lies. He has however, been heavily linked with a return to the Serie A, with Milan and Bologna among the clubs said to be interested.
