The agent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Milan fans to forget about a San Siro return – at least for now.
The Swede yesterday admitted that he’d love to return to the Diavolo, a club he left in the summer for Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Mino Raiola has told Sky Sport Italia that Ibrahimovic is focused on becoming a success in France.
“It was just a simple compliment,” Raiola claimed. “It would be a waste of time to get the Milan fans dreaming. It would be better to wake up and think about the future.
“Milan are the only one of his former clubs where he would go back to, but to talk about it actually happening would be excessive.
“He’s happy in France and doesn’t want to go back on his decision. He’ll be a top player for the next few years and he certainly won’t leave PSG for the next three years.
“If at the end of his contract, when he’s 35 or 36, Milan want him then he could go back. He could even become a director…”
Raiola also explained that the principle reason for Ibra’s sale was to do with the financial restraints of the Italian game.
“Milan couldn’t afford a player under certain conditions. Ibra has now joined an ambitious club and he’s part of a great project.”
