Di Marzio: Milan are not interested in Ibrahimovic; Mandzukic set for move abroad

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not a concrete target for AC Milan in January, according to respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with bringing the Swede back to San Siro ever since he departed for Paris Saint-Germain back in 2012, but the speculation has intensified over the last few weeks, coinciding with the team’s struggles in front of goal.

Ibrahimovic’s contract with MLS side LA Galaxy expires at the end of the December, and earlier on Wednesday SportMediaset (via Calciomercato.com) stated that he has chosen not to renew with them.

They also added that Milan are interested in the idea of re-signing the 38-year-old, but only on a six-month loan and not until then end of 2021.

Now though, Di Marzio appears to have poured cold water on those suggestions, speaking to Sky Italia about Milan’s strike targets.

“At the moment Milan are not concretely interested in Ibrahimovic,” he said, via MilanEye.

“Mandzukic? More feasible that he moves abroad in case he leaves Juventus. No Italian club have come forward for him in a concrete manner.”

Meanwhile, Di Marzio also commented on Milan’s reported pursuit of midfield duo Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.
