Zlatan Ibrahimović has dismissed any possibility of a loan move away from LA Galaxy during the off-season period in the MLS, according to Sky Sports.
The 37-year-old striker has played for a host of clubs across Europe during his long and illustrious career – Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, and now LA Galaxy. He scored 22 goals in 27 appearances during the MLS season that just ended. His contract run through 2019.

Ibrahimović, however, has no intention of following in their footsteps. He stands firm he is an LA Galaxy player as he’s contracted to them, and he wants to keep all his focus on his full-time employers.
