AC Milan 'recruiting' Zlatan Ibrahimovic, says MLS chief
Football superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to return to Italian club AC Milan at the end of his spell with LA Galaxy. This comment has been made by Major League Soccer (MLS) commissioner Don Garber. Zlatan's deal with the MLS club ends at the end of the year. The 38-year-old is now set to reunite with his former club. Here's more.
Zlatan had sparked speculation over a surprise return to Spain
Earlier, Zlatan had sparked speculation over a surprise return to Spanish football. Taking to Instagram, Zlatan posted, "Hello, Spain. Guess what? I'm coming back." However, it all appears to have been a publicity stunt for a betting firm that employs him as a brand ambassador. As per reports, the betting company is due to begin operating in Spain.
Garber on Zlatan's next move
"Zlatan is such an interesting guy," Garber told ESPN. "He keeps my hands and inbox full. He's a thrill-a-minute. He is a 38-year-old guy who is being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world."
Zlatan enjoyed a successful spell at La Galaxy
Zlatan is out of contract in December and for a while he has been heavily linked with a transfer back to European football. And now if Garber's comments are to be believed, the Milan will get a solid player. After moving to LA Galaxy last year, Zlatan went on to net 53 goals in 58 appearances for the club. 31 goals came this season.
A look at Zlatan's marvellous career
He started his career with Malmo and netted 18 goals in 47 games. He joined Ajax in 2001 and amassed 48 goals. Zlatan moved to Serie A in 2004 and played for Juventus (26 goals), Inter (66 goals) and Milan (56 goals). Ahead of Milan, he played for Barcelona for one season. He also played for PSG (156 goals) and Manchester United (29 goals).
Struggling AC Milan will be boosted by Zlatan reunion
AC Milan will hope to see Zlatan being a revolution for them once he makes a return. The Swede had two successful seasons here and his recent exploits at LA Galaxy show that he can do well. Milan have struggled badly in recent seasons.
