Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s days in Major League Soccer are over. On Wednesday, the superstar tweeted a thank you message to the LA Galaxy as they part ways and told fans to “go back to watching baseball.” The 38-year-old Swedish forward joined two seasons ago and scored over 50 goals over that span, giving the Galaxy arguably the best pure striker the league has seen and one of the best players in the world of the last 20 years.

“I came, I saw, I conquered. Thank you L.A. Galaxy for making me feel alive again. To the Galaxy fans — you wanted Zlatan, I gave you Zlatan. You are welcome. The story continues … Now go back to watch baseball.”

The Los Angeles Galaxy confirmed his departure moments later, and sources tell CBS Sports his next stop will be a return to Europe as expected.

His status had been up in the air for a while now and it’s no secret he and agent Mino Raiola have been leaning on one-year deals for flexibility purposes. CBS Sports has been able to confirm interest from various European clubs, mainly Bologna and Napoli.

“We would like to thank Zlatan for his contributions to the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer,” LA Galaxy President Chris Klein said in a statement. “Since his arrival in 2018, Zlatan has positively influenced the sport of soccer in Los Angeles. We are grateful for his work ethic and passion. We thank Zlatan for his professionalism and immeasurable impact on the Los Angeles community and the soccer community in North America as a whole.”

Ibrahimovic scored 52 goals and 17 assists in 53 starts for the team.

Those inside the Los Angeles Galaxy told CBS Sports that they wanted him back but felt as if he wanted to leave. Now, the world awaits his next destination.
