Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future at AC Milan is yet to be decided. However, the renewal talks have been put on hold due to the Coronavirus emergency, as mutually agreed by the parties.
As reported by Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri are waiting for the return of the Swede, who is currently in Sweden. In other words, to get more certainties with regards to his future, Ibrahimovic will have to return to Italy for a meeting with CEO Ivan Gazidis.
However, for now, he will remain in Stockholm. Almost all of the foreigners have returned to Milan, having left when the season was brought to a halt: Asmir Begovic, Ismael Bennacer, Ante Rebic, Hakan Calhanogly, Simon Kjaer, Rafael Leao, Lucas Paqueta.
The report says almost all because two are still missing. Franck Kessie is stuck in the Ivory Coast due to the lack of flights, which Milan are trying to help him with. And of course, the second player is Ibrahimovic.
The 38-year-old has reached an agreement with the club to remain in Sweden until the training dates are official. As soon as that has been announced, he will return to Italy and re-join the group at Milanello.
His contract with Milan will expire on June 30, though of course he will be allowed to finish the season. However, a meeting is needed to determine what will happen after that, though the future seems pretty clear.
Per the report, it’s hard to imagine Ibrahimovic in the new project, led by Ralf Rangnick. Therefore, the most probable outcome remains the farewell at the end of the season, leaving Milan for the second time in his career.
