According to Italian media reports on Thursday, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to AC Milan, as stated by MLS Commissioner Don Garber. It is believed that Milan want to sign the Swedish striker on a six-month contract in order to push for a place in the UEFA Champions League.
Milan are presently placed fifth in the Serie A table, three points behind Lazio. The 38-year-old striker has been constantly linked with a return to one of the European leagues following a two-year stint in America. His contract with LA Galaxy expires at the end of the year. During his time at LA Galaxy, he has scored 52 goals in 56 appearances and missed out narrowly on winning this year’s MLS Most Valuable Player Award 2019.
There has been much speculation about Zlatan's possible move to Manchester United or Napoli as well. The player even created much speculation through a social media post in which he hinted on returning to Spain. However, that post turned out to be a gambling promotion.
MLS Commissioner Don Garber told a leading American media daily on Thursday that the striker is in talks with AC Milan. The striker has scored 148 goals for both AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus in the past. He stated that the 38-year-old, who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world, has set records with the number of goals he has scored over the last two years.
Garber went on to say that Ibrahimovic is exciting on and off the field and he certainly keeps their hands full. At the end of the day, he would love to see him back but it is eventually up to LA Galaxy to re-sign him. The commissioner concluded that he has enjoyed the Zlatan moments, particularly when he interacted with him.
