AC Milan have officially confirmed that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has put pen to paper on a new contract until June 2021.
After what seemed like weeks and weeks of back-and-forth negotiations between Milan and Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola, all major outlets began reporting that a full agreement had been reached, and now this has been confirmed.
The Swede secured his return to Milan in the winter and scored 11 goals in the second half of the 2019-20 season, causing the management to push ahead with an offer for a new deal despite the fact Ibrahimovic will turn 39 next season.
A statement on the club’s official website reads: ‘AC Milan is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement for the contract renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimović, extending the partnership with the Rossoneri Club until 30 June 2021.’
Ibrahimovic’s Milan career began 10 years ago back in 2010, and since then he has racked up 85 appearances, 56 goals, a Scudetto and an Italian Super Cup.
Ibrahimovic joined his team-mates and coach Stefano Pioli at the Milanello Sports Center in the afternoon, where he held his first training session.
