Ibra closer to Milan return

Multiple reports state LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is moving closer to a return to Milan in January.

The Swedish striker spent two seasons with the Rossoneri, scoring 56 goals in 85 games and winning the Scudetto in 2011.

He was sold to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2012, but has admitted since that he never wanted to leave.

Rumours of his return have been circulating for months, and both Sky and calciomercato.com are reporting that a deal is moving closer.

Agent Mino Raiola is in constant contact with Milan technical director Leonardo to discuss the terms of the deal.

Ibra is not a Designated Player in MLS, with a salary of $1.5m per season, around €1.33m.

His salary in the U.S is being boosted by endorsements and sponsorship deals, but he would no longer command a huge salary.

It’s believed Ibrahimovic would accept around €4m per season, but the issue is the length of the contract.

The Rossoneri would prefer to offer a six month deal with an option for a further year, while Ibra wants a guaranteed 18 month contract.

His contract with LA Galaxy runs until the end of the 2019 MLS season, so there may also be a transfer fee involved.

Despite that, Ibrahimovic’s return to San Siro appears to be moving closer, and could well happen in January.
