CorSera: Ibrahimovic dreaming of UCL return after renewal – clause built into new contract

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has finally put pen to paper on a new contract after weeks of speculation in the media that his signature was close.

The Rossoneri have announced that the Swede has renewed his contract with the club, which means he will remain into his 40s. Ibrahimovic signed his contract at Casa Milan yesterday evening, taking part in the customary photo shoot and speaking to the club’s media channels.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), the hope is that the renewal of the Swede will restore some enthusiasm to a team that is certainly struggling having lost against Sassuolo on Wednesday night.

Ibra dreams of playing in the top European club competition at the age of 40 with the Milan shirt. While his contract signed last summer was for a fixed €7m net, the new one has a clause with a minimum attendance threshold without which it will not be €7m. engagement.

Zlatan is convinced that he can play another great season and that he can still be the usual leader, but before looking too far ahead there is a huge game against Lazio on Monday which becomes a fundamental direct clash against Lazio.
