Reports: Ibrahimovic moves further away from Milan; Everton and Watford options

By Oliver Fisher -

The chances of seeing Zlatan Ibrahimovic secure a return to AC Milan are fading away, according to a number of reports on Monday.

We reported via our mercato expert on Tuesday evening that optimism from Milan regarding the signing of Ibrahimovic has grown to the extent that Zvonomir Boban hopes to unveil the striker on Sunday before the game against Sassuolo.

However that didn’t happen, and ironically the Rossoneri were held to a 0-0 draw as they couldn’t put away their chances.

Monday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by – references the words of Paolo Maldini prior to the game in which he described Ibra an ‘an option’, but that other solutions exist.

The paper then adds that the hopes of seeing the 38-year-old back at San Siro are diminishing day by day, and that the dream therefore seems destined not to become reality.

Meanwhile, La Repubblica (via also report that Ibrahimovic is moving away from a return to Milan, but that he may even retire from football altogether. However there are two options in England: namely Everton and Watford.
