AC Milan sporting director Ricky Massara has confirmed that the club have reached agreements with six players to extend their contracts until the end of August.
Milan had six players whose time at the club was set to come to an end on June 30; namely Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura, Alexis Saelemaekers, Asmir Begovic and Simon Kjaer – the latter three being on loan.
A lot of the speculation has been surrounding the future of Ibrahimovic however, with an abundance of reports claiming the the Swede will end his second spell with the Rossoneri after just a few months in order to return to his home country and either play for Hammarby – the club he owns 25% of – or move into a director role there.
Massara spoke to Sky Italia before the game and refused to rule out the idea of Ibrahimovic remaining, if the conditions are right.
“Ibrahimovic is a champion. We will evaluate with him if there are the conditions to move forward together. We have an agreement with the six players with expiring contracts to extend until August,” he said (via MilanNews).
