Manchester United have confirmed that they have terminated Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract with immediate effect, leaving the veteran striker as a free agent ahead of an expected MLS switch.
The former Paris Saint-Germain, Milan and Barcelona star had joined the Red Devils in 2016, and impressed in his debut season at Old Trafford with 28 goals in 46 games.
Ibrahimovic, however, suffered a serious knee injury in April 2017 that cut his campaign short, and despite making a return this season the forward was far from his best after an eight-month lay-off.
Now United have announced that a one-year deal signed back in August has been cut short, meaning Zlatan is free to seek another club.
The news comes at a time when the former Sweden international is expected to complete a move to MLS.
