CorSport: Ibrahimovic left ‘restless and disappointed’ by Milan – the club’s stance on his future

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will cut short his second spell at AC Milan once the current season ends, according to the latest reports.

There have been doubts over the future of the Swede ever since the departure of CFO Zvonimir Boban, a man who was key in persuading him to return.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Boban was Ibrahimovic’s main point of reference in a Milan that he knows have a different project and one that does not lend itself to having a 38-year-old in the squad.

One thing is certain: Ibrahimovic is ‘restless and disappointed’ by his new Milanese adventure and has become disheartened by the present situation, which includes difficult results and a war of words in the media.

In addition, Elliott Management do not seem to want to try too hard to try to keep him. In fact, CEO Ivan Gazidis would not have the intention of paying a €6million salary to Ibra, but would offer €4m.

This is a condition that the former Malmo and PSG star does not accept. He will not make discounts at the end of the season, at most he would give a discount to Hammarby of whom he owns 25% of the shares.

There will be no retirement though as Ibrahimovic wants to play until he is 40, so the only question now is where he will end his career.
