Zlatan Ibrahimovic is closing in on returning to AC Milan for a second spell at the club, according to a report.
We reported recently that the Rossoneri’s owners Elliott Management have given their approval for Paolo Maldini, Zvonomir Boban and Ricky Massara to go out and sign experienced players in the January window.
Ibrahimovic has been repeatedly linked with a move back to Milan after he left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, and speculation was fuelled when Paolo Maldini branded him a ‘dream player’ during the week.
It has even been claimed that CEO Ivan Gazidis had given his approval for Ibrahimovic’s return to the club despite his age (38) and the high salary he would likely demand.
Now, Marca are claiming that Zlatan is ‘likely to return for another spell with Milan’, despite Tuttomercatoweb reporting that Manchester United have also been in contact over a return to Old Trafford.
As the Marca report notes, Ibrahimovic notched 148 goals and 61 assists in 294 Serie A games across spells at Juventus, Inter and Milan.
