LA Galaxy signing Ibrahimovic admits Man Utd move almost never happened

LA Galaxy signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he almost never joined Manchester United.

Ibrahimovic was keen to join Galaxy at the end of his PSG tenure in the summer of 2016, but the proposed switch fell through and he ended up penning a one-year deal at United.

"It was supposed to happen before Manchester United. My head was here. I wanted to come here and it didn't happen," said Ibrahimovic.

"These things sometimes go like that. But my destiny said I was going to come here, Los Angeles called and I answered."

The Swede could make his debut against Los Angeles FC.

"I'm available. I have so much adrenaline in me, so I think I can last a long time."
