It seems Los Angeles Galaxy are not giving up easily on their quest to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Manchester United striker has settled nicely into the Premier League and has arguably been the team's best player this season. However, he has often he wouldn't mind finishing his career in MLS. And LA has taken notice.
Per Grant Wahl, the Galaxy have offered Ibrahimovic a contract that would make him the highest-paid player in MLS history - and by a wide margin.

Zlatan is currently earning almost $14 million per year with Manchester United, but the MLS offer would reportedly eclipse that.
To put things into perspective, Sebastian Giovinco and Kaka are currently the highest-paid players in the league, and neither reaches the $7.5 million mark.
Zlatan has been decisive for United this season, notching 26 goals and playing a big role in the team's success in the UEFA Europa League and the English Premier League. He has enough left in the tank to play in Europe a few more years, but we never know with him.
He could easily pack his bags and head stateside. And if he does, there's no question the league would welcome him with open arms.
