By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted he is back where he feels ‘at home’ as his renewal was virtually confirmed by the club.

After what seemed like an endless saga, numerous reports emerged on Friday claiming Milan had finally reached an agreement with the Swede over a new one-year contract.

This has now seemingly been confirmed by the club who broadcast the 38-year-old’s arrival at Milan Linate airport via their official app.

He also spoke upon his landing, with his statements transcribed by MilanNews.

“I am very happy to be back here. Finally everything is ok and I am finally back where I feel at home, now we have to work and bring results,” he said.

“I am not here to be a mascot, I am here to bring results and help the team, the coach and the club to get Milan back to where they need to be. In the last six months we have done well but we have not won anything. There is the possibility of starting, working hard, making sacrifices to reach the goals.

“I’m fine, in shape. A message for the Milan fans? I hope to see the fans soon at the stadium. The team needs the fans, we blow up the Milan fans. Forza Milan, always.”
