Ibrahimovic says he is convinced the switch to Major League Soccer club Galaxy is the ideal move.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is officially a member of the LA Galaxy.

"Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan", he wrote under the video he shared with his fans in which he appeared in one frame with a lion and wearing a LA Galaxy jersey.

Manchester United agreed to the mutual termination of Ibrahimovic's contract on Thursday, paving the way for the 36-year-old to complete his move to California.

Ibrahimovic was released last summer after a fine first season at Old Trafford ended in a serious knee injury, only to be rewarded with a new contract until the end of the 2017-18 season in August past year.

The charismatic goalscorer had not played for United this season since featuring in a 2-2 draw against Burnley on December 26.

"People that know me know that I play in many clubs", Ibrahimovic said last season.

China trade war over tariffs sends global markets crashing

North Korea reportedly agrees to hold summit preparation talks in March
The exercises have caused tensions for years, with Pyongyang condemning them as preparations for an invasion of the North. South Korea on Saturday said that North Korea has accepted its proposal to hold high-level inter-Korean talks next week.

The deal makes Ibrahimovic the latest in a long line of ageing stars who have been lured to America by the Galaxy following David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and former England global Ashley Cole.

"I want to accomplish as much as possible", Ibrahimovic said.

The giant 6ft 4ins tall (1.95m) striker has an ego to match his towering physique but has backed up his boasts by collecting an incredible 31 winners' medals in spells with Ajax, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and United. With rumours of his Sweden National squad return for the world cup on the cards, he can now give time to his fitness to perform well.

"Dear Los Angeles, You're welcome", said the back page of the Los Angeles Times sports section, with Ibrahimovic's signature at the bottom of the mostly blank sheet.

LA has an intriguing collection of talent to provide service for Ibrahimovic, including French winger Romain Alessandrini, who became one of MLS' best overall players last season in his Galaxy debut.

The Swede's reported arrival in MLS comes at a time when clubs are increasingly turning away from the recent practice of signing veteran European stars already into their 30s.

The Galaxy slumped to the worst season in franchise history last fall, finishing last in the MLS table.
