AC Milan considering surprise contract renewal

AC Milan are considering renewing the contract of Zlatan Ibrahimovic for one more year. The Swedish striker is well and not thinking about retirement.

Another year with Ibrahimovic? Yes, it is probable and feasible. La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the chances of a one-year extension are very high because the harmony between the Swedish striker and the Rossoneri environment is total, as are individual and collective ambitions. And because the player’s performances are positive. In short, all the conditions are in place to continue together a little longer.

In a few months, Ibra and AC Milan will sit down and discuss the contract renewal for one more season. In all likelihood, the parties will meet at the beginning of the new year, after the winter transfer window is closed and the other contract renewals are defined.

There do not seem to be any obstacles of an economic or technical nature, just an unknown factor to be taken into consideration, namely the physical condition of Zlatan. If the body of the 40-year-old Swedish striker responds as it has done so far there will be no hesitations.

The Swedish striker has recovered after an irritated Achilles tendon and is back playing regular football. In 6 Serie A appearances so far, Ibrahimovic has scored 3 goals and has set up 2 testifying he’s still one of the best centre forwards in circulation. With the Swedish national team Zlatan declared that he is feeling good and is not think about retiring.

In short, if Ibrahimovic is physically well, signing for another year with the Rossoneri will only be a formality. Zlatan is an important point of reference in the AC Milan dressing room and on the pitch he has shown that he can still make a difference.
