The Galaxy were reportedly "inching closer" to signing Ibrahimovic, per Jeff Carlisle for ESPN FC. However, this has been played down by the president of the MLS club.
"We're nowhere," Klein said on an approach for the United striker. "We wouldn't [confirm that talks are ongoing]. It's unfair, because he's contracted to another club.”
The 36-year-old could be looking to move following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United in January. Ibrahimovic has only made one league start since his return from injury in November 2017 and has not featured in any competitive matches since Dec. 26 at the 2-2 draw with Burnley due to a flare up of his knee injury. He has been out of action for a month and is not quite ready to return:

Despite his limited game time at United, former Tottenham Hotspur forward and current LA Galaxy player Giovani dos Santos is excited by the prospect of the Swede playing in MLS.
"I don't know if it's going to happen," he said. "I respect him. I think he's one of the best players in history, you know, the greatest striker. A player like him, I think, is welcome in every team."
Ibrahimovic played a big part in his debut season in Manchester, scoring 25 goals in the Premier League and Europa League before his season was ended with a serious knee injury in April. The Swedish striker hasn't been able to hit his stride since recovering, not least because Romelu Lukaku, signed from Everton in the summer, has started 25 of United's 26 league matches in 2017/18.
LA Galaxy are in their offseason and looking for new recruits before the 2018 MLS campaign gets under way on March 4. Ibrahimovic would be a coup for the team.
