Half Europe is asking for Ferrán Torres07 April 2020 / Rui Sousa
The Spanish forward may leave Valencia for one of the European football giants
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the great scorers in the world in the last 20 years, and at 38 still continues to generate a great impact with each of his actions. With rumors about his return to European football occupying the headlines of the newspapers for several weeks, this Wednesday it seems to have come even closer after the Swedish published in his social networks a farewell message from the LA Galaxy, club of United States in which the striker played the last two seasons.
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 pic.twitter.com/kkL6B6dJBr— Zlatan Ibrahimovi? (@Ibra_official) November 13, 2019
It couldn’t be otherwise, and the message chosen by Zlatan to say goodbye to American fans was very peculiar: “I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you LA Galaxy 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,” the Swede wrote on his social networks alongside an image in which he is seen contemplating the American city from above.
If there was any doubt about his possible continuity in the Californian club, with which his contract ends in December, this message puts an end to speculation and to Ibrahimovic’s stage in MLS. The 38-year-old scorer arrived at the club two seasons ago and in total played 58 games in California, scoring 57 goals and contributing with 17 assists to help the Galaxy return to the playoffs in 2019 after two years of absence.
Galaxy also confirmed a few hours later the agreement reached with the player to continue their way on different paths and thanked the Swedish for his contribution to the development of football in the city and the country. “We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer. 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,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein.
Ibrahimovic, who began his career at Malmö FF in his hometown, had an incredible career in Europe before arriving in the United States, passing through Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, ??Milan, PSG and Manchester United. In total he has scored 523 goals in 788 games at club level, adding a total of 31 titles with 11 leagues in four different countries, to which we must add 85 goals in 137 meetings with the Swedish national team.
In recent weeks there was speculation with a return of Zlatan to the Spanish league after a mysterious message from the striker himself on his Instagram account in which he said: "Hola España, guess what? I'm coming back." In the end it seems that this publication was related to an advertising promotion, although there are still many doubts about the future of the scorer. About a week ago, MLS Commissioner Don Garber also got into the game with a phrase that said his destiny is in Italy: “Ibrahimovic is 38 years old and now he will sign for AC Milan, one of the best clubs in the world, ”he said to end the matter. Now, and once his departure from the Galaxy is officially confirmed, it will be Zlatan's turn to announce once and for all what will be the next, and possibly last, club of his career.
