Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made the decision to leave AC Milan at the end of the current season, according to a report.
Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) claims that the farewell of the Swede is certain, and they have even put the news on their front page.
The adventure of the 38-year-old will last just six months despite the impact he has had during such a short period. Ibrahimovic was left disappointed and embittered by the chaos unleashed just before the Coronavirus emergency and disheartened by future scenarios.
First there was the sacking of Zvonimir Boban because of comments he made regarding CEO Ivan Gazidis, and with Paolo Maldini set to follow at the end of the season Ibrahimovic knows that two of the key figures who convinced him to return will no longer be there.
In addition, his relationship with Gazidis is not ideal. His choices have caused a nuisance mixed with dissatisfaction which has grown day by day. Then the logistical problems related to the health emergency did the rest, preventing a face to face with Gazidis that would have been important.
This meeting could take place on his return to Milan if the season were to end in some way. Two stances have always come from the ownership: on the one hand the importance of Ibra on and off the field, on the other that any decision will be made at the end of the season.
Those around him describe Ibrahimovic as disappointed and bitter, so much so that his second spell at Milan will be definitively closed, just as he was starting to come around to the idea of staying another year.
