Raiola: 'Ibra open to Italy return'

Agent Mino Raiola is again stirring up controversy, as he said “never say never” to Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to Italy for Inter, Milan or Juventus.

The rumours were sparked by reports today that the PSG striker had bought a new house in Milan.

“Is Ibrahimovic’s future in Paris? Today yes, but perhaps tomorrow no,” Raiola told La Repubblica this evening.

“In football everything is possible, so I don’t close the door on anything. Never say never...

“He is happy in Paris and Paris Saint-Germain are happy with him, so I don’t see any reason to leave. Then again, Ibra was happy at Milan and then went to PSG...

“I think it is almost impossible for a return to Italy. If he does return, then there are two or three clubs who could sign him: Milan, Inter and Juve. There are also clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea around.

“If he leaves PSG, will Serie A be in pole position? Ibrahimovic has never hidden the fact Italy is in his heart. It is his second home.”
