Mediaset: Milan closing in on signing of striker as Ibrahimovic gives his approval

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are moving closer and closer towards being able to confirm the signing of striker Olivier Giroud, according to a report.

The renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic was made official recently, and it is a sign of continuity that Milan wanted to give to the group. The Swede will be the leader of a young and growing team for another year, but his injury problems this season have shown he can’t play close to every game which is why a new striker has been sought.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanNews), there is strong optimism about the arrival of the French centre-forward ahead of next season with negotiations heading in the right direction. The Milan management even have a two-year contract ready worth €4m net per season.

The Rossoneri have decided to go for Giroud because Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo is still raw, while for Dusan Vlahovic the asking price of Fiorentina is too high. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has also given his approval to the arrival of Giroud.

  1. Why do ibrahimovic have to approve a player. Last one was old too and didn’t score a single goal. Milan should sign a younger player. Maybe Belotti.

  2. I believe geroud will better than manzukic who was without club and haven’t play competive match for months before milan sign him,geroud is has 11 goals and won the champion league bring the winning mentality to milan is good for our return to champions league. In geroud the experience + goals+ winning mentality is sure

  3. This is open letter to calhanoglu.
    the case of manzukic reminds me of calhanoglu who was ban for a year by fifa, unbelievablely milan sign him even thus they know he haven’t play competive matches for months. Milan save his career. In his first two season in wasn’t at his best despite that milan trust him and gave him hope. The difference between manzukic situation and calhanoglu was that he was younger than manzukic(23 to 34). Here today calhanoglu is in his best thanks to milan yet he want to be ungrateful like donnarumma. Flashback to 2017 Calhanoglu
