Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is edging closer to a transfer to LA Galaxy following the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez, according to reports in the United States.

The Swedish legend returned to action at the end of November after overcoming a major cruciate ligament injury, though has missed United’s last six matches after aggravating his knee.

In the meantime, United have bolstered their attack by signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in a straight swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, which is likely to reduce Ibrahimovic’s game time further.
