AC Milan are ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a deal until 2021 to convince him to return to the club, according to a report.
It was announced via the LA Galaxy’s official website on Wednesday night that the 38-year-old will be leaving the club once his contract expires on December 31.
Ibrahimovic amassed 52 goals and 17 assists in 53 starts for the Galaxy and quickly became a star in the MLS, while a number of outlets have linked him with a return to Milan.
According to reports from il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews.it), Milan’s owners Elliott Management were against the ‘novelty’ of bringing Zlatan back to the club so as not to ‘derogate from the youth project’.
However, the striker is now back in Maldini and Boban’s notebooks as they look for a leader with experience and firepower.
The paper goes on by claiming that the idea is ‘alive’ and that the club are ready to offer him an 18-month contract, not the six-month deal initially thoughts.
However, he is not the only option as Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic is also being considered, while the third choice is out-of-favour Everton man Moise Kean, who agent Mino Raiola has offered to the Diavolo.
