AC Milan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic appear to want to continue together into next season and a new deal could be on the cards.
According to this morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic’s name is currently surrounded by optimism, regarding his recovery from his latest injury, the closing part of the season and on his future. Ibrahimovic is optimistic and so are Milan, who for their part have no intention of separating from their leader.
In the coming months, the Swede and the Rossoneri management will meet to discuss the extension of the current agreement expiring in June. Despite numerous injuries, Zlatan’s contribution to the Rossoneri cause was decisive and the club wants to continue and further strengthen the relationship with the player.
The Growth Decree will also lend a hand, with a 50% tax discount that will also apply from next year, so the contract should remain around €7m net but the cost to the club would be just over €10m rather than the €14m gross at the moment.
Ibrahimovic, who turns 40 in October, will not be able to play all the time. Therefore, the purchase of a young and strong centre-forward is essential, something that will be discussed by the market men.
