Sky journalist reveals the shirt number Ibrahimovic has chosen – why it may change

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has chosen his AC Milan shirt number after securing his return to the club, according to a report.

The Rossoneri confirmed the signing of the Swede on December 27 via a statement on their official website, with Ibrahimovic having penned a six-month deal with the possibility of extending that for an extra 12 months.

The 38-year-old landed in Milano on Thursday and was greeted by Zvone Boban, as well as the club’s Press Officer, who conducted a short interview with the striker for the club’s channels.

There has been plenty of talk regarding which squad number Ibrahimovic will take having secured his return, with the No.11 he had in his first spell at the club currently occupied by Fabio Borini.

According to Sky Italia journalist Peppe Di Stefano, Ibra has chosen the vacant No.21 shirt for the time being – however that may change.

Should Borini secure his exit in the coming days – with a move to Genoa seemingly imminent – then Zlatan could change his mind and take back the 11.
