Report: Raiola key as €25m PSV star linked with Arsenal, Liverpool could replace Ibrahimovic at Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are already considering potential plans for if Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves at the end of the season, according to a report.

Ibrahimovic secured his return to the Rossoneri early in January and has already had a marked impact on the team, who have not lost a game since his arrival.

However, at 38 years of age the Milan leadership are of course wary of the fact that the Swede does not represent a long-term option, possibly not even an option beyond June.

According to a report from transfer outlet calciomercatonews.com, agent Mino Raiola may have a hand in who replaces his client at the San Siro.

Considering the now excellent relationship between the influential agent and the Milan management, Raiola could held bring a new centre-forward to the Diavolo in PSV sensation Donyell Malen.

Currently out with a knee injury, the 21-year-old has already scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, earning a call-up to the Dutch national side.

Excluding potential commissions – certainly not insignificant when talking about Raiola – Malen could apparently be allowed to leave in the summer for €20-25million, but Arsenal and Liverpool were also linked with moves prior to his injury.
