Raiola: 'Zlatan prepared for Milan talks'

Mino Raiola said he and LA Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic are “prepared to talk” to Milan about a move now that they are under new ownership.

The Swede turned 37 this week, but reports continue to gather pace that he could make a return to the club he represented from 2010-12.

“At the moment it’s not a possibility, because the conversations we had with the club are not current, but we are prepared to talk,” agent Raiola told Rai Sport.

“In any case, now there are finally normal people in charge of Milan and reliable owners. I never had problems with the Rossoneri, because quite simply the club was non-existent before now.”

Raiola also represents Gianluigi Donnarumma and Giacomo Bonaventura, but threatened to take both players away during a feud with director of sport Massimiliano Mirabelli.

Yonghong Li’s failure to keep up loan repayments saw the club repossessed by Elliott Management and the US hedge fund removed both Mirabelli and CEO Marco Fassone, bringing in Leonardo instead.

“I am not opening the door, nor closing it. There is great mutual respect between Ibra and Leonardo. Zlatan had wonderful moments at Milan and left a piece of his heart in Milano, just as he was happy at PSG,” continued Raiola.

“Zlatan has never asked for guarantees in his career, because he knows you earn those in training. We would have to understand on what conditions Milan or any other team would want to sign him, though.”
