AC Milan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are set to continue their journey together as CEO Ivan Gazidis made an extra economic effort to keep the striker, a report claims.
According to Thursday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic and Milan are about to reach a compromise, a meeting point between the request of the Swede (€7million plus bonuses) and the initial offer (€5m net plus bonuses).
The paper adds that the agreement will be reached at around €6million, after Gazidis reflected and made the extra economic effort to convince the player.
Therefore, the difference between offer and demand has dropped to €1million. The white smoke hasn’t arrived yet, but the optimism continues to grow as Milan plan to close the deal before the weekend.
On Thursday a new meeting is on the agenda, one which could end up being the decisive one as Zlatan has never hidden his desire to remain.
