By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is getting closer and closer to a renewal with AC Milan. The conclusion is now in sight and the Rossoneri have made some changes to their plans ahead of the transfer window, a report claims. 

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it), the next 48-72 hours will be decisive for the agreement between Ibrahimovic of Milan. The fixed part contract should be worth between €5.5m and €6m, but there will also be some bonuses.

This will make the 38-year-old the best-paid outfield player at the club, only behind Gigio Donnarumma on the wage bill. The bonuses will be related to individual goals but also team goals, such as Champions League qualification.

In the meantime, Mino Raiola and Milan are working to put the agreement in place, which will keep the Swede ar the club for one more year. With that, the Rossoneri aren’t expected to sign a striker, as they also have Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao.
