Zlatan Ibrahimović’s agent Raiola has said ‘there is no opening or closing’ in regards to possible talks with Milan and again belittled the Chinese ownership.
In the past week there have been many rumours in regards to Milan’s plans for the January transfer market and one of the names that has come up is that of 37-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimović.
Leonardo admitted before the Olympiacos game that signing Ibra was ‘more than a thought’ that he had in the summer. And it seems that Leo is still considering getting the big Swede, most likely on a six-month loan deal from Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy, to give Gennaro Gattuso another option in the striker position, in addition to Higuain and Cutrone.
“At the moment it’s not a possibility, because the conversations we had with the club are not current, but we are available to talk,” Mino Raiola, agent of Ibrahimović, Donnarumma, Bonaventura, Verratti, Pogba and many others, said in an interview to RAI Sport on Friday evening.
“In any case, now there are finally normal people in charge of Milan and reliable owners. I never had problems with the Rossoneri, because quite simply the club was non-existent before now [Raiola was always doubting the Chinese ownership and had personal issues with Max Mirabelli].
“If Ibrahimović would accept a third-choice role at Milan? As long as Zlatan movies, he will always be a first choice. He has never asked for guarantees in his career, because he knows you earn those in training. We would have to understand on what conditions Milan or any other team would want to sign him, though. If aegotiations are therefore possible with Milan? There is no opening or closing. There is great mutual respect between Ibra and Leonardo. Zlatan had wonderful moments at Milan and left a piece of his heart in Milano, just as he was happy at PSG.”
Ibrahimović himself also reacted to the reports. He was caught by a TMZ Sport reporter and in a typical Zlatan way, answered: “There are always rumours. The whole world wants me. It’s okay.”
