Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrived in Los Angeles on Thursday, following his exit from United.
The enigmatic striker has long been linked with a move to the MLS, before joining United.
Ibrahimovic revealed he almost made the move to US before he switched to England in 2016.
“It was supposed to happen before Manchester United, my head was here and I wanted to come here but it didn’t happen, things go sometimes like they are not supposed to go but destiny said I would come here,” Ibrahimovic said.
“LA called and I answered. The whole situation, when Becks [David Beckham] came here it gave a boost to the league. He came to Galaxy to build and set the bar and this is something that has kept going with [Robbie] Keane and [Steven] Gerrard and now I am here.
“It was very easy, LA called and I answered.”
