Le Parisien: Ibrahimovic probed ground over possibility of PSG return through agent Raiola

By Oliver Fisher -

Renewing his contract with AC Milan at the end of the season was not the only option being considered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a report claims.

According to reports from Le Parisien (via MilanNews), the Swedish centre-forward probed the ground through his agent Mino Raiola to understand if there was the possibility of a return to Paris Saint-Germain before eventually renewing his deal with Milan for another year.

In particular, it was the Italian-Dutch agent who tested the ground with Leonardo, who however replied that he was not interested in the return of the Swede. Ibrahimovic, who will turn 40 next season, continues to be a very important pillar of the Milan side having helped guide them back to the Champions League as the top scorer last season.

He will be with the Rossoneri until at least next June, and then he will decide if it is finally time to hang up his boots.

    Propably only mino doing his usual dirty deeds to earn a few bucks more, anyways i cant wait for the day when the club cuts all ties to raiola and makes him a persona non grata at the club as all clubs should do.

      Not gonna happen. As long as he’s got top players as clients, some greedy club will agree to pay the fees to snag the player. The whole thing with rising wages and transfer fees in football is like a game of chicken. And clubs like Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, City and the English clubs just refuse to blink and would rather go into massive debt than pass on signing a player for fear that they’ll fall behind. Then they want to form a super league where they would earn 300m euros per year, but what would then stop the top players from asking for double or triple what they make now? The 300m would soon not be enough and they’d be underwater again and back to square one. The simple solution is to cap agent fees at a certain percentage and to institute salary caps in each league.

        Fully agree that it propably wont happen but when that is said mino raiola propably only has 50 -60 players that has him as their agent and of them propably around 20-25 of them are either mid to big profiles so its really not like he orchestrate the entire transfer market so it should be fairly doable but yeah im sure some clubs wouldnt let go of a possibility for the high profiled ones like haaland etc. In my opinion we should add in new contract signings that our players cant hire him while with us. When that is said i do agree about the potential problems in having a super league as the players and agents just would ask for more so it would just be continuing a bad circle. Im fully behind the idea of yours having a cap on agents or for that matter players salaries and sign-on fees as that atleast would solve the problems,
