AC Milan have not held any talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic despite rumours suggesting otherwise, according to a report.
MLS commissioner Don Garber caused a stir on Thursday when he claimed that Milan are trying to ‘recruit’ Ibrahimovic for another spell at the club.
“Zlatan is an interesting character. He keeps me very busy & you need this kind of players like what happened with Beckham few years ago.
“He is 38 years old and is now being recruited by Milan, one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he told ESPN FC on YouTube.
We reported earlier on Friday that the Swede is attracting interest from three teams in Italy, namely the Rossoneri, Napoli and Bologna, though Milan denied that an agreement has been reached.
According to the latest from Sky Italia (via MilanEye), Milan have not been in contact with Raiola to discuss the idea of Zlatan coming back to the club.
Instead, CEO Ivan Gazidis has reiterated that the ideal reinforcement for January is an experienced player around 30-32 years of ago who currently plays for a big club but cannot get much playing time.
That description seems to fit Ivan Rakitic pretty well…
