GdS: Champions League, national team and renewal – Ibrahimovic goes all-in at 39

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t getting any younger, at least on paper, turning 40-years-old in October of this year. Following the success this season, he is expected to remain at Milan for one more. 

He may have struggled with injuries this campaign, but when he has been on the pitch, he has been near impossible to stop with 14 goals in 14 league appearances. Incredible numbers, confirming just how important he is for the team.

As highlighted by Gazzetta Dello Sport, Ibrahimovic is going all-in despite his age as he just got called up to Sweden’s national team as well. He wants to play the Euros, of course, and thus completed his return after five years.

In addition to the national team, he’s expected to sign a contract for one more season with Milan, who are currently in second place. This means Champions League football, a competition that the striker is yet to win.
