Where in the name of Carmen San Diego is Zlatan Ibrahimovic going to end up?

Last night the Zlatan to LA rumors fueled up again when a senior BeIn Sports anchor sent out a eye-opening tweet.

Keys was probably referring to what transpired last night: The Evening Standard reported the 35-year-old held a four hour meeting with agent Mino Raiola at a Manchester restaurant that lasted into the a.m., promising a ‘huge announcement’ on his way out.

The Swedish striker left Manchester United earlier this month after the Reds opted not to offer a contract extension following his cruciate knee ligament injury.

He has been recuperating at United's Carrington training HQ and is reportedly making impressive progress.

That has led to suggestions Ibrahimovic could be offered a new deal as early as October.

He spent four hours with Raiola at city centre establishment Tattu, leaving at around 1am on Thursday morning.

When asked by photographers outside where he would be playing in the coming season, Ibrahimovic - walking freely after previously using crutches - said: “There will be a very big announcement soon, it will be huge.”

After months of speculation, it appears the Ibrahimovic saga is coming to a close soon.
