AC Milan hoping to complete a deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic – report

Manchester United face competition from AC Milan as they continue their efforts to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract, according to the Telegraph’s James Ducker.

He was not offered a new deal at the end of last season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April and is likely to be ruled out of action until Christmas.

The Portuguese boss admitted he could resign the 35-year-old Swede in time to play in the second half of the season and he’s been working hard with his social posts which showcase his rehabilitation going to plan.

However, Mialn are also interested in signing Zlatan even though they have already spent more than £160 million this summer as the club’s new Chinese owners set about rebuilding the squad.

He scored 56 goals in 85 games at the San Siro between 2010-12 and it’s clear after last season at Old Trafford, Zlatan still has what it takes.

The big Swede scored 28 goals before his season was ended prematurely and there’s no doubting the fact that if there’s only player to come back from a career-ending injury at the age of 35, it’s Zlatan.
