Zlatan Ibrahimovic looks set to return to European football after reports of a move to AC Milan have emerged, with an announcement expected over the coming days.
The 38-year-old is expected in Milan to finalise the deal. Any complexities attached to the deal, given the salary the striker may demand and given the Financial Fair Play (FFP) restrictions all clubs must adhere to, have been overcome, according to reports. The Rossoneri are currently banned from European competitions for breaching the FFP rules.
The Swede's contract with LA Galaxy expired this month after a season which saw him score 31 goals in 31 appearances, earning him a spot in the 2019 MLS Best XI.
Ibrahimovic has now reportedly signed a six-month contract, believed to be worth in the region of €3 million with an extension option written into the contract, as the former European giants aim to climb up the Serie A table from 11th. The popular footballer played at the San Siro for two seasons at the beginning of the decade, coinciding with the club's last league title in 2011.
The club's next game is against Sampdora on Monday, January 6, at which point Ibrahimovic may be available to play.
