As the MLS transfer window opens today, It’s looking like the Zlatan saga has entered the stalemate stage of proceedings, where the only action is people in suits crunching numbers and fans bemoaning their frustration on social media. Recently sources informed Goal’s Ives Galarcep negotiations are still in the works.

As reports circulate claiming a Zlatan Ibrahimovic deal with the LA Galaxy is almost done — sources tell Goal that, as of Monday, negotiations are still ongoing, but nothing is close to finalized...

Sigi Schmid confirmed negotiations are in full swing when LA Galaxy Insider Adam Serrano got a hold of the manager at training, who continues to speak in a diplomatic but encouraging matter.

Meanwhile, the Express reports that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho fears a simmering feud between Ibra and newcomer Alexis Sanchez could spill over into the locker room. Sources claim Zlatan isn’t too happy about Alexis’ superior wages, and Mourinho believes moving Ibra sooner rather than later could avoid a potential dilemma. (As well as offload his 300,000 pound-a-week salary)

It’s becoming more apparent United would prefer to bid farewell to their luxury attacking option. Is the feeling mutual for the 36-year-old Swede? All signs point to yes.
