Los Angeles Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic confesses that he wanted to join the club before he signed for Manchester United.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted that he wanted to join Los Angeles Galaxy before he signed for Manchester United two years ago.

The 36-year-old, who was recruited by the Major League Soccer outfit last week, has confessed that the switch could have happened in 2016.

"[The move] was supposed to happen before Manchester United. My head was here. I wanted to come here," Ibrahimovic told reporters in his first Galaxy press conference.

"Things go like they are not supposed to go, but the destiny said I will come here. Los Angles called and I answered."

Ibrahimovic, who scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for United, joined the MLS side after his contract at Old Trafford was terminated by mutual consent.
