Zlatan Ibrahimovic has held talks with LA Galaxy as his Manchester United future remains unsure.
Former Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas has said that contact has been made with regards to the Reds 26-goal top scorer moving to the MLS in the summer.
Ibrahimovic signed for Jose Mourinho last summer when he became a free agent at Paris St Germain. But the American club were keen on his signature then.
The 35-year-old striker preferred the Old Trafford and Premier League challenge and he has been a big hit.
But he has yet to commit to another season at United, prompting suggestions he is USA bound at the end of the season.
“There have been conversations and, I think, a relationship for some time regarding this possible move,” former international Lalas told the BBC.
“The Galaxy are Major League Soccer’s ‘super club’. They do big, bold things.
“They have sexy signings, that’s what they have built themselves as, that’s what they sell themselves as, and this type of signing would fall right into play with that.
“I think they do have a chance.
“And whether it’s this summer or maybe a year from now I still think there’s going to be interest.”
Ibrahimovic played in United’s Europa League 1-1 draw in Russia against Rostov but will now serve a three-match ban for his elbow against Bournemouth.
He will miss Monday night’s FA Cup quarter final at Chelsea and the two following Premier League games against Middlesbrough and West Brom.
