Repubblica: Milan’s Christmas present ready – Ibrahimovic is expected in training on December 30

By Oliver Fisher -

Everything is all set for Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to AC Milan, a report claims, with the two parties now very close to an agreement. 

MilanNews.it offered yet another update on the situation on Wednesday by claiming that the Swede is closing in on a return to the club.

According to La Repubblica, the deal is almost complete and the 38-year-old forward  is expected to return to Milanello when training resumes after the Christmas break on December 30th.

This comes despite links with Napoli and Everton, and also after news filtered out of Casa Milan suggesting there was pessimism surrounding Ibrahimovic and his response to Milan’s offer.

The striker does not seem willing to retire, as he had been mentioned, but rather he will accept the proposal of Boban and Maldini, endorsed by CEO Ivan Gazidis.

It would be a six-month contract, expiring in June 2020, with the extension clause for another year, linked to the number of goals he scored between now and the end of the season.
