Ibrahimovic’s salary at LA Galaxy revealed


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken a “95 per cent pay cut” to join LA Galaxy from Manchester United.

The veteran Swedish striker was earning a huge £19million-a-year at Old Trafford but has signed up to play Major League Soccer on a pay packet of just £850,000-per-annum.

According to Marca, Ibrahimovic is not going to be one of the American club’s designated players, which restricts them to a wage limit of just $3.8m (£2.8m).

That means he is only taking home £16,000-a-week, a huge drop from his giant £350,000-a-week wage packet at United.

Last week, after the deal was made official, Ibrahimovic explained why he went to America to finish his career.

“After being in Europe, winning 33 trophies, playing in the best teams in the world, playing with the best players in the world, I wanted to come to the US and play my game there.

“I wanted people to enjoy my game there and to win, and I chose the Galaxy to do that,” he said.
