However, despite all of his bravado, the 36-year-old still has questions over his fitness.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has joined Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy after his contract at Manchester United was ended early by mutual consent. "Move over to the US, try the MLS. And I chose the Galaxy to do that".

"I'm excited to come over and to get the experience with the Galaxy and to explore how the football is there".

Beckham and Ibrahimovic briefly played together at PSG and now the 36 year old has revealed that the former England captain advised him to move to the club.

"During this time, I was constantly in contact with him, just staying engaged whether in the phone or in person", Kirovski said.

"He was like: "You should come over, go over, and try it out, play there".

Announcing his departure, United said: "Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future". "I'm training very hard".

Ibrahimovic also showed his motivation in the financial aspects of his move.

Metro newspaper in London reported him saying, 'I made a decision to sign with Galaxy because I think it's the right place for me, ' he told the club's official website.

Ibrahimovic also confirmed he hasn't ruled out a return to the Swedish national team for the World Cup this summer despite retiring from the worldwide game in 2016, saying that "the door will always be open".
