Ibrahimovic, last week, ended a short but successful stint at United where he won the League Cup and the Europa League.

The striker has become the latest high-profile player to move to the MLS, following the likes of David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Thierry Henry and Frank Lampard.

United coach, Jose Mourinho, must have sanctioned the move and we expect that means the Swede is no longer of use to him.

Now he says European football has lost a "huge player" in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Mourinho used his news conference ahead of Saturday’s English Premier League game against Swansea City to pay tribute to the talismanic Swedish forward who he previously coached at Inter Milan.

"For me it’s always sad when the big players move towards the end.

"I remember Luis Figo’s last match with me and Inter, it was one of my saddest moments.

The Zlatan goodbye was more in that direction, he’s a huge player that European Football has lost.

"But this period with LA Galaxy will be very good for him, he will be good for American football, because of what he can do; his personality, his passion and his professionalism,” Mourinho told reporters.
