Will Zlatan Ibrahimovic leave AC Milan? Based on Italian media reports, the Italian club is not going to offer him a contract extension and Monza is interested in the Swedish striker’s services.
According to the latest reports, Ibrahimovic is likely to leave AC Milan. Italian football site Foot Mercato reports that after reaching an alleged agreement on a new contract with Rafael Leão, and even before that Olivier Giroud, the Rossoneri are not planning to offer the Swedish legend a contract extension.
Ibrahimovic’s contract is valid until the end of June this year. Although it is currently unclear whether the Malmö, Sweden native will retire, Monza are already interested in the services of the 41-year-old striker.
The latter is currently thirteenth in Serie A with 34 points and looks set to avoid a relegation battle.
But for next season, Monza’s management wants to bring in players as part of the squad completion and strengthening, and Ibrahimovic could be one of the alternatives.
From AC’s side, then, not renewing Ibrahimovic’s contract is a completely logical outcome. The Swedish striker was injured again at the recent national team meeting in the framework of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, whereupon the Milanese are expected to miss the end of April.
The Malmö native only returned to action at the end of February after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in May. He missed 30 games because of it.
Since then, he played 16 minutes against Atalanta, 24 against Fiorentina, 28 against Salernitana, and in his last league game against Udinese, he came on as a substitute and scored a penalty. This made him the oldest goalscorer in Serie A history.
In any case, he helped AC win the Scudetto last season, not only as a player on the pitch, but also as a motivator in the cabin and unofficial assistant to coach Stefano Pioli.
