AC Milan have offered less than other clubs in the race to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a report claims, with the striker’s decision expected soon.
It is seemingly no secret that the 38-year-old is Milan’s main target for the January transfer window, with the club’s owners Elliott Management having agreed that more experience is needed the help a struggling young squad.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), the Rossoneri have made their maximum offer to the player and they will not be raising it any more.
The club’s leaders have not issued an ultimatum to Ibrahimovic, the paper claims, but if he is to accept their offer they would like him training at Milanello in December so he can achieve/maintain excellent athletic condition.
Milan’s offer is €6m for an 18-month contract, and other teams have offered more in their bid to sign the Swede, but Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban are hoping that a return to San Siro, the chance to still be leader in Serie A and to become an icon of the Rossoneri revival could mean more than money.
