In one of the biggest moves in recent history, Zlatan Ibrahimović has signed 22-year-old Major League Soccer to a two-year contract. The deal is filled with incentives that could see Major League Soccer earning millions of dollars by the end of the contract.
Major League Soccer’s career got off to a shaky start in 1996. In fact, MLS almost retired altogether in 2001, but a last minute deal extended its playing days. Since then, MLS has had a career resurgence, showcasing its talent and skill in cities around the United States.
While Zlatan Ibrahimovic has won many championships over the years, MLS brings experience and a pedigree that Zlatan has lacked: MLS Cup experience. If MLS can help Zlatan finally win that elusive MLS Cup, Zlatan will have truly reached the pinnacle of worldwide football.
MLS, welcome to Zlatan.
