Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ‘very likely’ to return to AC Milan after admitting he wants to move back to Italy, a report claims.
Ever since Ibrahimovic announced that he won’t renew his contract with LA Galaxy, there have been tons of reports about a potential return to AC Milan, as the Rossoneri have made him their primary target.
Wednesday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by MilanNews.it – cites the interview that the Swede had with GQ Italia during which he said: “I will go to a team that has to win again, that has to renew its story, which is looking for a challenge against everyone.
“Only in this way will I succeed in find the necessary stimulus to surprise you again. As a footballer it is not just a matter of choosing a team, there are other factors that must fit in. Even in the interests of my family. See you soon in Italy.”
The paper notes that, taking his words into account, it is ‘not difficult to imagine’ a return to Milan for Ibrahimovic.
The club are convinced that they have done their best and presented an important offer to the 38-year-old considering his age and the two years spent in the MLS.
For now, a definitive answer has not yet arrived, but it is clear that these declarations bode well for the leaders of the Rossoneri club.
The report concludes by adding that Ibra is ready to return to Italy and in the next few days his new team will be known.
