MN: Ibrahimovic’s future beyond 2021-22 to be discussed as Benfica star is targeted

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to carry on playing but the AC Milan management are looking to the future with a target in their viewfinder.

According to MilanNews, Ibrahimovic has no intention of retiring just yet, just he stated in his long interview with Milan TV on the occasion of his 40th birthday. However, the management are thinking about what to do about the centre-forward department given he missed over half the league games last season and has played for just 17 minutes so far in the current campaign.

At the end of the season, Paolo Maldini, Ricky Massara and the Swede will sit around a table to understand if and how to move forward together. A lot will depend on how many minutes Zlatan will have between now and the end of the season and his contribution on the pitch.

This is why the Rossoneri are following Benfica’s Darwin Nuñez with great interest, as he continues to shine both domestically and now in Europe, having netted a brace against Barcelona. Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic will not renew his contract, but he seems a very difficult target.

    “Carry on playing?” Playingwhen exacly?? Grandpa is injured 90%of the time, yet acts all cocky and arrogant.

      In Ibra we trust.

      There is a big different between arrogant and confident. People who don’t have it won’t understand it.

    I hope he can stay injure free and do good!!! I would like him to play 1 more season after this!!

    I would rather have Ibra as part of the coaching team than as a player currently, considering his current state of fitness.

    Ibra is a living legend and he has contributed immensely to the beautiful game of football, but it’s high time we put AC Milan and its future first.

    Let’s sign Nunez and or Belloti as a free agent, that way the attacking department is covered for at least 5 seasons from now.

    Players like Florenzi and Giroud are old and might not give the required result.

    Let’s maintain the average age of at least 25 that we once had.

    There are a lot of superstar players below 25
