CM: Ibrahimovic ready to express his discontent after ‘verbal friction’ with Gazidis

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan – just like the whole of Italy during the outbreak of the coronavirus emergency – appear to be plagued with uncertainty and paranoia at present.

Despite this, attentions have already turned to the future and what the Rossoneri may look like for the 2020-21 campaign both on and off the field, with several outlets in agreement that a managerial revolution is on the way.

As Calciomercato.com notes, the fate of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also in danger. They state that Ibra is restless, as he sees a profoundly different situation than the moment he arrived, during which he was given the task of being the focal point around which a revival in the second half of the season simply had to arrive.

With the current crisis going on in the boardroom, the 38-year-old is far from calm but rather eager to explode. These are not the conditions in which he thought he would be operating. He believed he could think of ending a compromised season at best and then to plan the next, after a renewal that seemed obvious.

But now it is no longer obvious, also because his automatic renewal would have been only been triggered via qualification for the next Champions League, which is now practically impossible.

Ibrahimovic has not agreed with the work of Gazidis in the recent period and there has also been some verbal friction between the two, the report continues, so much so that a chat with the CEO is scheduled for this week.

The Swede is ready to express his discontent during said meeting, and while there is no refusal from Elliott regarding a renewal it present it will be a negotiation that needs sorting as soon as possible so as not to further anger Ibra, but also the Milan fans.
