MN: Two options and a decisive meeting on the cards – the latest on Ibrahimovic’s Milan future

By Oliver Fisher -

Among the most important issues for Milan to solve over the coming weeks is the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with no strong indication either way regarding his future.

The Swede came to Milan four months ago to experience a second spell with the Rossoneri, but now he will have to decide what to do at the end of the season.

According to MilanNews, the Coronavirus emergency has changed many scenarios and Ibra is considering whether to continue at Milan or change clubs again, with retirement not mentioned as an option as Zlatan is still physically well and would like to continue playing.

In order to do so though he must feel like a protagonist, and if Milan manages to reassure the 38-year-old that there will be a competitive team for next year, his renewal would be more certain.

It will also be essential to understand the club’s project, the prospects for next year and which coach the Rossoneri will focus on. The economic aspect for Ibra is not relevant.

A meeting with the CEO Ivan Gazidis is on the cards and will be vital to understand if there are conditions to continue into a second season, and with Zvonimir Boban now gone and doubts over Paolo Maldini’s permanence, it might be that the former PSG man has to build a brand new bond with Gazidis.

If the season were to resume, Ibra will play his last 12 games and then make a decision, but he wants to leave as a protagonist and as a winner and not be a burden for the club.
