Mediaset: Ibrahimovic more than an idea for Milan; striker stalls on decision

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is taking his time over making a decision on his next club with three teams in the running, according to one journalist.

It was confirmed earlier in the month that the Swede will depart LA Galaxy officially once his contract expires at the end of the year, leaving him free to sign with another club, and Milan are one of the teams in the running according to a number of outlets.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Monday though that Bologna are the team now leading the race thanks to a ‘blitz’ from their director Marco Di Vaio.

Now, journalist Claudio Raimondi has discussed the future of Ibrahimovic during his segment for SportMediaset on Italia Uno (via MilanNews.it).

He claims that Bologna have been trying to convince him to join for some time, but for now the 38-year-old is taking time to try and see what moves Milan and Napoli make, as they are the two other interested clubs.

For Rossoneri directors Zvonomir Boban and Paolo Maldini, Ibra is considering ‘more than an idea’, especially if the problems of the Milan attack continue.

However, the future of Dries Mertens could play a part. Should the Belgian leave Napoli in January, Zlatan could have a starting spot guaranteed and a chance to compete for a European spot.
