AC Milan: Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to extend but …
Soon at the end of the contract with AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic should extend… but under certain conditions.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will turn 41 in October, but his desire to continue playing at the highest level is still intact. He made it known yesterday, with a video posted on his social networks where the Swedish giant continues the shots on goal: « I decide when to stop, just like I decide that the yellow ball will touch you »he captioned the video.
However, physical problems left little time for Zlatan to express his talent on Italian lawns. In Serie A, he started just 11 times in 33 appearances, but his 937 minutes played were crucial with two assists and eight goals. The last time was against Venezia (3-0), more than three months ago. According to information from The Gazzetta dello SportIbra will soon meet Milanese managers Maldini and Massara, who are expected to stay on despite change of ownership on the horizon.
The Investcorp fund, which will complete the acquisition of the team in the coming weeks for 1.1 billion, likes the idea of continuing to count on the striker, but with very different conditions than today . Zlatan Ibrahimovic earns 7 million euros net until June, while his new contract would be a maximum of a third of this figure. The former Barca and PSG player won’t prioritize money for the final year of his career so a deal seems possible. In the meantime, Zlatan is preparing to return and live as a protagonist the last five days of Serie A, during which AC Milan will have to defend their leadership to celebrate a Scudetto that has eluded them since 2011. Stefano Pioli will be able to count on him again for Sunday’s tricky trip to Lazio.
