Mediaset: U-turn regarding stance of Milan star who is now willing to discuss renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

There has been a U-turn in the feeling surrounding a potential renewal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to a report.

Last week, we revealed via our correspondent Vito Angele that denials have come from the entourage of Ibrahimovic for the moment regarding the idea of retirement. The Swede instead would gladly discuss a stay in Milan, but at the moment the facts are that no call or signal of approach has come from the club.

Now a report from SportMediaset (via MilanLive) has backed up what we exclusively learned. They claim that something has changed in the last few days and now Ibrahimovic looks set to return to talking about a renewal.

The 38-year-old doesn’t want to hang his shoes up just yet, since with the Coronavirus emergency he had to stop playing. He wishes to continue, and the possibility of doing that with the Rossoneri shirt will be ignored.

The management has re-established contacts with Mino Raiola to try to find an agreement. To date, therefore, the chances of the No.21 staying for at least another season seems more feasible.

The next few months will be decisive, as will Milan’s plans: with Ibra’s ok, it cannot be excluded that Gazidis will grant an extension to his contract and keep him at least until June 2021.
