While Hakan Calhanoglu and Gianluigi Donnarumma’s contract situations are dominating the media headlines, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future must also be resolved.
As Tuttosport reports (via MilanNews), the Swede spoke about his future last night during an interview with ‘Che tempo che fa’, stating: “Will I stay another year at Milan? Let’s see, let’s see. It depends on Paolo (Maldini). If he wants to call, I am there.”
Ibrahimovic has therefore virtually confirmed that he is open to staying with the Rossoneri, since a few weeks ago he had declared that he was waiting for a call from director Maldini to try to reach a new agreement for the renewal. Regarding a new contract, the first topic to be dealt with will be the salary of the 39-year-old, who currently earns €7m net.
Zlatan also said some beautiful words about Milan: “At Milan I have many responsibilities, and I feel like a leader. This team is the only team where I am I’m excited, I want to give a lot and teach a lot to be a guide, because when they look at me they expect something from me. And I’m ready for it.”
Ibra is currently injured but hopes to be able to return to the pitch soon to help out his team-mates, and then we will see what happens once the season is over.
