Milan: PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic could consider a return to AC Milan in Serie A, according to the Sweden striker’s agent in a report yesterday.
Ibrahimovic is set to leave the French champions at the end of the season, with reports claiming the 34-goal striker could be headed for England’s Premier League.
Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola told men’s magazine GQ Italia that the Swede could return to Italy where he also starred for Juventus and Inter Milan.
Extracts appear on gazzetta.it, which quoted Raiola as saying: “Ibra could return to Italy, to Milan.”
In what is seen as a veiled reference to recent reports linking Ibrahimovic to a 75m euros-per-season deal in China, Raiola, in direct extracts from the magazine interview, added: “Ibrahimovic is a player who is capable of some amazing tricks. Even turning down many millions to go to AC Milan. “He has still not decided.” Raiola also represents Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and Liverpool’s on-loan AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.
He dismissed claims Paul Pogba would be tempted away from recently-crowned champions Juve by Chelsea this summer, but added: “At least not right now.”
He believes Balotelli, who has yet to resurrect his career at Milan, would have been a match for Barcelona icon Lionel Messi if he only had the same attitude to his career as Ibrahimovic.
