MN: Milan left waiting longer by Ibrahimovic – no deadline set; he will not report on Tuesday

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have had another day of waiting and received no response from Zlatan Ibrahimovic regarding their renewal offer, a report claims.

The Swede was not at Milanello on Monday to undergo his COVID-19 test ahead of Tuesday’s return to training because even more time is needed to find an agreement on the renewal, in what is becoming a long and drawn out saga.

Milan technical director Paolo Maldini insisted there is ‘always optimism’ regarding the renewal of Ibrahimovic as he spoke briefly to Sky earlier on Monday evening, but again there has been nothing definitive to suggest the signature will arrive soon.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Ibrahimovic’s response to the renewal offer has not yet arrived and he will not be at Milanello on Tuesday for the team’s first training session.

However, the club continues to be confident of an agreement with the player and the absence of a deadline is reiterated.
