The Swedish striker is a free agent after Manchester United decided against extending his stay at Old Trafford after the end of last season.

Manchester United begin their pre-season in the searing Californian heat against an LA Galaxy side in the middle of their MLS campaign.

Ibrahimovic was linked with the Galaxy before joining United from Paris Saint-Germain previous year.

And Ibrahimovic's future could be resolved soon after the Swedish star was quoted as telling photographers: "There will be a very big announcement soon, it will be huge".

Two arrested, charged with the murders of missing Bucks Co. men
Cosmo DiNardo , the main suspect in a case of four missing men in Pennsylvania, admitted to their murders on Thursday. Then, on July 7, Dinardo spoke with Finocchiaro and agreed to sell him a quarter pound of marijuana for about $700.

Galaxy coach Onalfo was coy on such talk, saying "our policy is not to comment on players that are not part of our team", but he was more forthcoming about the club's transfer plans in general. "Absolutely (we have room for a marquee player). We always have. The DNA of the Galaxy is to attract world-class players, so we're always looking for one". MLS clubs are allowed a maximum of three players whose wages exceed the club's salary cap, but those positions are now occupied by Romain Alessandrini, Giovani dos Santos and Jelle van Damme. Romelu Lukaku has been brought in from Everton to help fill the void.

How strong a starting team Jose Mourinho fields against the Galaxy remains to be seen, although he has a full squad to chose from meaning it likely to be a strong side that will face the Los Angeles outfit.

Ibrahimovic, who turns 36 in October, was United's top scorer last season with 28 goals.
