Tuttosport: Salary not the issue – Ibrahimovic asks Milan for guarantee in order to renew

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has asked for a guarantee from AC Milan before he will consider signing a contract extension, according to a report.

It seemed almost certain that Ibrahimovic would be leaving at the end of the season, but the subsequent U-turn in the club’s plans regarding the arrival of Ralf Rangnick has seemingly reopened the door for the Swede to stay.

If before his renewal seemed impossible, now a glimmer of hope seems to be present.

According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Ibrahimovic flew to Montecarlo yesterday to take stock of his situation with agent Mino Raiola before starting the negotiation with Milan for the renewal.

Zlatan cares about the Rossoneri, he feels at home inatMilanello and is happy that Pioli will still be at the helm of the team. The Swede, however – rather than an important salary – wants a leading role, and a spot in the starting XI into the new season.
