Ibrahimovich free to go if he wants

United manager Jose Mourinho said he would not stop Ibrahimovic from moving to the Galaxy, and responding to the speculation Tuesday, Schmid told LA Galaxy Insider: "There's been a lot of talk about it in the past and it's something that maybe gets opened up again".

Earlier it was reported that the former Sweden global and captain will receive an annual salary of $7.7 million at LA Galaxy and become the highest-paid player in the MLS.

The 36-year-old striker has not played for the Red Devils since suffering a recurrence of his knee injury on Boxing Day that kept him out for over seven months in last year.

Some reports suggest the striker has already signed a deal with the LA Galaxy but Sky Sports News have spoken to the club and as yet they have nothing to say.

Mourinho said: "Zlatan is in his a year ago of his contract".

Ibrahimovic, who was the leading goal scorer for United after joining the club in 2016, put 28 goals behind the net in 17 appearances in all games.

"But the last thing Zlatan told me he was to recover totally and help the team". He never mentioned that to me, so I don't know.

"I don't know if it is going to happen but he's a legend, one of the best strikers in history of soccer", said the Mexico global.

He said: "He's a very important player for me, he's a great professional who is giving everything he can to help the team".

There is now no need for United to have him as Sanchez can play in all attacking positions if required along with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to rotate with each other and striker Romelu Lukaku. "That was the last thing I heard from him".

The 55-year-old said: "The club wants he same as I want, it's as simple as that".

Mourinho has also expressed hope that Marouane Fellaini could sign a new contract.
