LA Galaxy are on the lookout for a "world-class" signing, but head coach Curt Onalfo would not confirm whether Zlatan Ibrahimovic was on their radar.
Asked whether the Galaxy - who have lured David Beckham and Steven Gerrard to StubHub Center in the past - had space for a marquee, Onalfo said: "Absolutely".
A reported £6m-a-year contract was offered to the 35-year old, with Richard Keys reporting that the deal was as good as complete, but Onalfo has moved to squash these rumours - saying: "Our policy is not to comment on players that are not part of our team".
"We need two more players I would say, at least one, but I don't want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct".
He netted 28 goals in 46 appearances for Manchester United last season before succumbing to a keen injury in March.
Ibrahimovic is not expected to play again for the next six months, but Jose Mourinho invited the Swede to continue his rehabilitation at United's Carrington training complex. Romelu Lukaku has been brought in from Everton to help fill the void.
