Sky: Man Utd out of the race for AC Milan target Zlatan Ibrahimovic

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United will not pursue a January deal for striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to the latest reports from England.

There is a whirlwind of speculation currently surrounding the Swede’s future, with his contract at the LA Galaxy set to expire on December 31.

Milan have been repeatedly linked with a move to bring Ibrahimovic back to the club ever since he left for Paris Saint-Germain along with Thiago Silva back in 2012.

However, it seems the speculation is most serious right now, as Don Garber – commissioner of the MLS – caused a stir last Thursday when he claimed that Ibrahimovic is ‘being recruited’ by the Rossoneri.

Our mercato expert Vito Angele then told us that Milan have held talks with the Swede – along with Bologna and Napoli – but that the club denied a deal being done.

The Sun – citing TuttoMercatoWeb – reported on Monday that Manchester United have also held talks with the striker over a possible return to Old Trafford.

However, the reliable Sky Sports have now offered a key update on the situation by claiming that United ‘will not be targeting a return for the 38-year-old’.

The former Juventus and Inter forward scored 29 goals for the club over a two-year spell, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not be pursuing a move, the report concludes.
