Repubblica: Ibrahimovic makes decision to extend Milan deal despite row with Gazidis

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be able to call upon the services of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic until the end of the season, according to a report.

We reported on Wednesday night that there was a heated confrontation between Ibrahimovic and Gazidis at Milanello, with the latter having stepped foot onto the training ground for the first time in three months.

During the meeting with the squad, they both raised their voices as the 38-year-old attacked the former Arsenal director for being too distant. The confrontation began almost immediately, in front of part of the squad and lasted for a few minutes.

According to Friday’s edition of La Repubblica (as cited by Calciomercato.com) though, Ibrahimovic will extend his contract until the end of August to ensure he is at Milan’s disposal from now until the current campaign officially finishes.

This is of course despite the tensions between he and those in charge of the club – namely Gazidis – while Tuttosport (via MilanNews) report his exit at the end of August is now certain with Napoli, Bologna, Monza and Hammarby all options.
