Conti: ‘Ibra would help Milan’

Andrea Conti would like Zlatan Ibrahimovic to join him at Milan, but Jose Mourinho hints the striker could re-sign for Manchester United.

The Swedish international is out with a cruciate ligament injury, and was released by the Red Devils at the end of his contract.

That has led to speculation he could return to the Rossoneri once fit, and new signing Conti is excited by the prospect.

“He’s a great player, I don’t have to say that,” the full-back told Milan TV.

“He’s a great champion and he’s won everything, he’d definitely be a great help.”

However, United manager Mourinho spoke to Premium Sport and hinted Ibrahimovic could return to Old Trafford.

“Maybe he'll stay with us. He's not got a contract, but he's still close to Manchester, and the fact we are involved in the Super Cup now is also his merit.”
