Report: Spurs could rival Milan for Ibrahimovic signing after Mourinho appointment

By Oliver Fisher -

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho could ask his new club to rival AC Milan for the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have been linked with a move to bring the Swede back to the club in the January window, but that speculation turned more concrete earlier on Wednesday.

The reliable Sky Italia (via claimed that there was a meeting between agent Mino Raiola and the Milan leadership to discuss Ibrahimovic and in particular to discuss whether his requests are compatible with their ideas.

According to a report from TEAMtalk though, Jose Mourinho could try and link up with the 38-year-old once again, with the pair having worked together at both Inter and Manchester United.

The former Chelsea boss has signed a contract at Spurs until the end of the 2022-23 season, having been out of work since his dismissal at Old Trafford last December.

He could ask the board to sign Zlatan as a deputy to Harry Kane given their lack of depth in that position, the report suggests.
