Yes, it's true. Though, Keane would have to retire, Gerrard be traded, or a rule change be implemented for it to happen. Fan voting currently has the Galaxy as the "best fit" for Zlatan. I agree. Honestly, if Keane has any nagging injuries or wants to focus on the Euro's, then he may voluntarily retire early to make room for Zlatan. We shall see.

He'd be a fool to go there now. He's done Sweden, Holland, Spain, Italy and now France. There is one league which is conspicuous by its absence on his CV. He should definitely do at least one season in the Premier League or I think he'll regret it.

Meh, I'd find it cool if he signed with Leicester City for a year.

Haha, not sure they could afford his wages!

Don't they get a huge bump for in funds for winning the league and qualifying for Champions league? I would think, at the very least, that they could bring in extra money through sponsorships, promotions, & investors due to their recent success.

Hard to imagine they have a smaller budget than an MLS team, but I guess L.A. does splurge with their funds since all their non-starters average like 35k.

Ibrahimovic will be after at least £250,000 ($360,000) a week plus bonuses. Leicester will get just over £93m for winning the league. That's actually the FIFTH highest in the league. My team has had a disastrous season and we're still only going to take away £10million less than Leicester. They'll get a nice financial boost from being the Champions League group stages but winning the Premier League isn't necessarily a ticket to the big time. Just ask Blackburn Rovers.

Zlatan will only want to go to a club with a lot of prestige around them. Manchetser United/City would be the most obvious choices but if he wants to live in London then Chelsea or Arsenal would be the option. Sadly, I just can't see him living in the East Midlands, playing in front of 30,000 people at the King Power Stadium when he could be playing in front of over double that at Old Trafford.
