Mediaset: Milan to pursue Real Madrid striker regardless of Ibrahimovic’s future

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will pursue a move for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic regardless of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future at the club, a report claims.

According to what journalist Claudio Raimondi has told SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic will land in Milano on Monday morning after an almost two-month stint in Sweden.

Ibra returned to his home country on March 12 and took advantage of the country’s less stringent rules to be able to train with Hammarby, the team he owns 25% of.

On his return to Italy he will have to observe 14 days of quarantine at his central Milan home, where he will train and be followed by the Rossoneri technical staff. If all goes well, he could return to training at Milanello on May 25, and in the next two weeks inevitably there will be talks about his future.

The injury sustained by Luka Jovic – a major Milan target – could rekindle the hopes of seeing Ibra in the Rossoneri again next year, but in any case one would not exclude the other.

The 38-year-old could easily be the starter in case Jovic’s recovery took longer than expected. Now it’s up to Gazidis to convince the former PSG man to stay, but it won’t be easy to make him accept a role that is not that of the absolute leader.
