Raiola flies in for Ibra and Pogba

Agent Mino Raiola has flown in for negotiations with Milan over Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but can also discuss Paul Pogba with Juventus.

The representative arrived in Milan on Friday, officially so he could accompany Rossoneri midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura as he goes into knee surgery.

However, multiple news outlets are confident this is a chance to talk with Serie A clubs ahead of the January transfer window.

The main topic of discussion is Ibrahimovic, who is ready to walk away from the LA Galaxy and MLS after they failed to make the post season.

Ibra has always said he’d relish a return to Milan and according to Sport Mediaset the deadline to make a decision is November 25.

So far, the club is offering only a six-month contract, whereas 37-year-old Ibrahimovic wants an 18-month deal.

The salary demands are in the region of €6m.

Ibrahimovic isn’t the only big client Raiola wants to place in Italy, as it’s reported he will also meet with Juventus chiefs to catch up on the Pogba situation.

Although he seems to have smoothed things over with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, rumours persist that Pogba wants a return to Turin.

Raiola’s trip to Milan during the break for international duty is a great opportunity to meet with Juve.

He can also do that openly, because he’ll have to negotiate options for Juventus teenager Moise Kean, who is expected to go out on loan in January.

There are offers from the likes of Parma, Frosinone, Udinese and Empoli for the Italy Under-21 international, along with Galatasaray further afield.
