Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a meeting with Gerry Cardinale this morning and the AC Milan owner would like to explore the idea of bringing him back, it is claimed.
Social media and the media in general went into overdrive when Ibrahimovic’s car pulled up at the training ground yesterday and he was spotted speaking to head coach Stefano Pioli and CEO Giorgio Furlani while the team did their morning session.
A number of reports then emerged suggesting that it was just a cordial visit that had been planned for some times, and that a return to Milan in any capacity was not imminent for the Swede, who retired from football at the end of last season.
However, Orazio Accomando of DAZN is reporting that Ibrahimovic had a conversation this morning in a hotel in Corso Venezia in Milano with Cardinale, the Milan owner.
Cardinale has ‘never hidden his desire’ to have a figure like Zlatan in the management, given his experience and the weight he could have for the team and staff.
This news emerges the day after Ibra’s visit to Milanello, in which he wanted to give his support to his former team-mates on the eve of the Champions League opener against Newcastle.
