Zlatan Ibrahimović will put pen to paper in the coming days as a deal has been struck between the parties.
Ibra is currently out for a lengthy period following an ACL surgery he went through following the Scudetto-winning season of Milan, but the striker has no intention of stopping and retiring from football.
Coach Stefano Pioli already commented on the fact that he would like to work with Zlatan also next year, and it seems that soon Ibra, who’ll turn 41 in October, will sign a new contract.
According to the transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, an agreement has been found between Milan and Ibrahimović over a new one-year contract. The player will get a much reduced salary, given that he’s only expected to return to action in January, of €1m-1.5m but will have bonuses in his contract also related to his performances, namely assists and goals.
Di Marzio claims that everything is agreed and done and the official signing is expected in the next few days. Zlatan will be wearing the Scudetto badge on his Milan jersey next season.
