Zlatan Ibrahimovic or no one. AC Milan, as reported by today’s edition of La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), has decided to focus solely on the Swedish international. In short, there is no plan B.
According to the newspaper, the Rossoneri directors haven’t even considered the hypothesis of signing someone else. Therefore, they are going all-in for Ibrahimovic, having got the approval of owners Elliott Management.
For example, the Mandzukic option has already been set aside, in addition to several other opportunities on the market. With the exception of Ibrahimovic, Milan don’t want to invest in players of the age of 30, as the report continues.
The offer on the table is a 6-month contract, with an option of extending it by a further 12 months, per the report. Should it be extended, then the Swede could earn up to €6m during his time with the Rossoneri.
Now, the ball is in Ibra’s court. Milan remains his first choice, but he is also evaluating other opportunities. The possibility of playing in the Champions League with Napoli is tempting, as is the call of his friend Mihajlovic at Bologna.
