GdS: Milan in race for Ibrahimovic – why they have advantage over competitors

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are joined by two other Serie A clubs in their pursuit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to the latest reports.

The Rossoneri are in dire need of experience and leadership to help a young squad which has so far lost seven out of 12 games this season and currently sits 14th in the Serie A table.

Speculation surrounding a return for Ibrahimovic have been persistent over the last few years, however they have intensified in recent weeks.

Our mercato expert Vito Angele revealed that Milan have held talks with the Swede – along with Bologna and Napoli – but that a denial over a deal being completed had come from the club.

Despite being 38, the Swede is reported to be attracting interest from a number of clubs after netting 31 goals in 31 games for LA Galaxy in all competitions, as La Gazzetta dello Sport note.

The paper claims on Wednesday that Bologna, Napoli and Milan are the three teams in the running to sign Zlatan.

However, Milan apparently remains a city where the striker ‘has been happy for years and where his children have been at home’, something which could give the Diavolo the edge in negotiations.
