Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be set for a return to AC Milan seven years after leaving the Serie A club, according to Marca.
The Swedish legend has seemingly called time on his stay with the LA Galaxy after two seasons in MLS, yet despite a video last week on social media suggesting that Ibrahimovic will return to Spain, the Rossoneri are the frontrunners for the 38-year-old striker, according to the report.
As well as Milan, TuttoMercatoWeb have reported recently that Manchester United are also interested in re-signing the former Swedish international, with Australian side Perth Glory also confirming via ESPN that they too have submitted an offer to sign Ibrahimovic.
It’s no secret that Milan have been struggling this season, with the San Siro side currently sat in 11th in the Serie A table (per BBC Sport) after a weekend defeat to Lazio.
And as well as underperform in the league, the Rossoneri have been poor in front of goal so far this campaign, with the Serie A table showing that the likes of Genoa, Lecce and Sassuolo, three teams that are well below Milan in the standings, have all out-scored the Italian giants this year.
With Ibrahimovic hitting 52 goals in 56 MLS appearances in the past two years as stats from Transfermarkt show, the former Milan striker has shown no sign of slowing down despite hitting the ripe old age of 38.
The former PSG attacker has shown in the past that he can compete in the Italian top-flight, with stats from Transfermarkt showing that the veteran forward has scored 122 goals in 219 Serie A appearances during his career.
Ibrahimovic’s age might be a cause of concern for Milan with the LA Galaxy attacker turning 38 this month, yet as a short-term solution for the club’s lack of goals this season, the former Swedish international could be the perfect man for the job.
As well as having an understanding of how to play in Serie A based on his previous success in the league, Ibrahimovic has continued his fine goal-scoring form over the past two seasons in America with a goal-per-game ratio of 0.92. Indeed, the Swede could well be the man to help save Milan from their current poor form and be the striker that brings goals back to the San Siro.
Will re-signing Ibrahimovic be a good move for AC Milan?
