Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reached an agreement with AC Milan to join the team in a six-month initial contract, according to press reports that appeared in Italy on Thursday.
Ibrahimovic has agreed to Milan’s proposal and is ready to sign an agreement to return to the European giant within the next two days, according to the newspapers Gazzetta Dello Sport and Sky Sports Italia.
Ibrahimovic will sign a 6-month contract worth 3 million euros with another one-year renewal option linked to certain conditions such as scoring goals and performance. The 38-year-old forward confirmed his departure from Los Angeles Galaxy last month after the club was removed from Major League Soccer playoffs.
The Swedish player should be available under coach Stefano Pioli on December 30, the date of training resumption at Milan.
Milan suffered especially after losing 5-0 to Atalanta last weekend, their worst defeat in 21 years and the club is now ranked 11th on Serie A.
The team’s first match after the winter break will be at home against Sampdoria on January 6. The club hopes that Ibrahimovic will impose leadership qualities and add a winning mindset in the locker room.
Ibrahimovic played in Milan between 2010 and 2012 and scored 42 goals in 61 games. He also won three league titles with Inter Milan and two with Juventus.
