Cassano believes Ibrahimovic would accept contract offer from Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Antonio Cassano has urged his former club AC Milan to go out and get Zlatan Ibrahimovic if they want to save their season.

As we recently revealed, owners Elliott Management have given their approval for Paolo Maldini, Zvonomir Boban and Ricky Massara to go out and sign experienced players in the January window.

Milan sit in the bottom half of the table having lost six of their first 11 Serie A games in a season for the first time since the 1941-42 campaign.

Ibrahimovic meanwhile has been repeatedly linked with a move back to Milan after he left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, and Paolo Maldini added to speculation when he branded Zlatan a ‘dream player’ last week.

Marca then claimed on Sunday that Zlatan is ‘likely to return for another spell with Milan’, despite reports of talks with Bologna and even Manchester United.

Now Cassano – who played with Ibrahimovic for two seasons – has urged Milan to go out and seal the reunion.

“Ibrahimovic is Milan’s only hope for straightening the boat. He makes those who play with him better,” he told Tiki Taka, via

“The Swede would also bring some enthusiasm to the whole Rossoneri squad. Is he the one who doesn’t want to come? In my opinion, if you give him a year and a half of a contract, he accepts.”
