Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made AC Milan his first choice destination for January and has set out his salary demands, a report claims.
It was announced via the LA Galaxy’s official website on Wednesday night that Ibrahimovic has left the club, meaning he will be free to sign with a new team in January.
Ibrahimovic racked up 52 goals and 17 assists in 53 starts for the Galaxy and has subsequently been strongly linked with a return to Milan – where he spent two years – to help a squad devoid of experience and leadership.
Speaking to Sport Mediaset on Italia Uno (via MilanNews.it), journalist Claudio Raimondi confirmed that Zlatan has decided to leave the Los Angeles Galaxy and is now looking for a club capable of guaranteeing him a both a leading role and a salary to match.
The Swede is asking for a salary of €3.5million-a-year, with Milan, Napoli and Bologna all ready to offer him a deal for six months with an option another year.
Under these terms, the Diavolo’s owners Elliott Management would not oppose Ibrahimovic’s return, and the player has made it clear that a reunion with Milan is his first choice.
