Galaxy and Ibrahimovic are yet to announce the striker's arrival in MLS but former team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined Arsenal in January, hinted at the forward's next move.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has vowed to take his trophy-winning "DNA" to LA Galaxy, insisting he will be the "same Zlatan" following his move to the MLS franchise.

Ibrahimovic, 36, hasn't featured at all for Jose Mourinho's United side since being substituted at half-time in a 2-2 draw with Burnley on December 26.

Stay updated with the latest sports news.

"Coming to play in the United States, it is only fitting for me to join the most successful team in Major League Soccer, the LA Galaxy", Ibrahimovic said in a statement released later by the Galaxy.

Over the course of his career, Ibrahimovic has played for some of Europe's top clubs, including Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona and Milan. "I need to play, and I want to play, so I'm hungry to play, because it has gone too long now that I haven't felt involved in the game".

Ibrahimovic's move also should energize the Galaxy, who will mix him into coach Sigi Schmid's intriguing collection of global talent.

The Galaxy have a history of luring ageing stars to America with Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane among those to have made the move to Los Angeles.

Beckham signed a five-year contract to join LA Galaxy in the summer of 2007, worth a reported $6.5million a year.

LA Galaxy have been chasing Zlatan Ibrahimovic for years.

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 appearances during a remarkable first campaign in the Premier League before tearing knee ligaments in a Europa League game last April. But the team is showing signs of promise under Schmid, the club's veteran German-American coach, and has opened the season 1-1-0.

Several clubs have instead found success by looking to sign younger players from South America who view the league as a potential springboard for a move to Europe.

"I know what I come with and what I am going to do", Ibrahimovic said in a video interview on the Galaxy official website. If he feels comfortable immediately, he could even debut in a derby against their new archrival Los Angeles FC on March 31.
