Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leaving Manchester United for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Ibra’s reign in Europe comes to an end this season. This is a sad day for fans who have been watching European soccer since Zlatan stepped on the scene. The guy has been killing it on every single stage. Whether it be Sweden (i.e. the best goal maybe ever scored against England), or for the clubs he played for. Zlatan did it in 4 different countries. Italy, Spain, France, and towards the end of the road, England. While Ibra was one of the best players of his generation, he was also one of the best characters in all of soccer. He was cocky, but he could be because he backed his talk with a bag full of goals. Most likely the last chapter of his career is going to be in LA, unless he pulls a David Beckham and then goes right back to Europe. Moving on, this is a great signing for the Galaxy. Even if he does not play that much, the money they make off of jersey sales and all the marketing you can do with his brand will be a great added bonus.
