Ibrahimovic All Set For A Shock January Return To His Former Club

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Zlatan Ibrahimovic appears to be on the verge of returning to AC Milan in January.

The veteran striker is reportedly far from happy with life in the United States, and is looking to secure a return to Europe as soon as the winter transfer window reopens.

He was linked with a sensational return to Manchester United for quite some time, but Jose Mourinho recently ended the speculation by confirming that the Red Devils will make no move for their former talisman.

Now, the Swede looks adamant on making a comeback to another one of his former clubs, in the form of Serie A giants AC Milan.

According to the reliable transfer pundit Fabrizio Romano (via Calciomercato), AC Milan are seriously considering the prospect of re-signing Ibrahimovic come January.

The Rossoneri are willing to match Zlatan’s current €1.5 million-a-year deal at LA Galaxy, as these wages won’t make a major impact on their annual balance. Further, the transfer is expected to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules as well.

Subsequent reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport add that Zlatan’s wife, Helena Seger, has also said ‘yes’ to the 37-year-old’s switch to San Siro, having previously lived in Milan during the forward’s stints with AC Milan as well as Inter.

Zlatan is said to be looking for a year and a half of contract, but the Milan management are currently prepared to offer a 6-month deal, with an option to extend for another season post the achievement of Champions League qualification.
