Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s long term future at AcMilan is in doubt. The club is preparing for major change in the summer. Zvonimir Boban and Paolo Maldini might leave the club in the summer.

December. The Swede who last played with LA Galaxy in the MLS, joined Milan

The LA Galaxy along with its superstar footballer from Sweden who is known for his flamboyant nature, Zlatan Imbrahimovic might not have gotten the chance to reach the final of the MLS Western Conference.

When asked about his future, the 38-year-old wisely answered if he stays back then it will be good for MLS as the whole world will be able to watch it. After LA Galaxy got defeated by 5-3 at the semi-final match of the Western Conference to LAFC, he said that nobody will ever remember who MLS was if he doesn’t stay.
Certainly, MLS will not disappear from its existence simply because Ibrahimovic will be retiring or moving on. But if the casual fans are taken into consideration in abroad or in North America who have paid a lot of attention to the antics, then it will be definitely hard to argue whether his departure will have any kind of considerable dent to MLS or not. Many of the other star players like Thierry Henry, Kaka, Wayne Rooney, David Villa, and David Beckham have stopped in the league but no one has been able to combine the kind of personality, controversy, and accessibility that Ibrahimovic has had while playing for MLS.

minute of the match which can be termed as the turning point. He came into his power after LA Galaxy got a penalty because of the strike by Matt Besler was declared as a handball within the area. His effort was deflected from the spot by Tim Melia. But the goalkeeper from Sporting Kansas City could not hang onto the ball and he slid to the ground feebly while Ibrahimovic moved forward and stepped into the ball to slot it into the net smoothly.
