With the possibility of signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic fading each day, AC Milan are starting to look around for alternative strikers.
At this point the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at AC Milan seems just a mirage. The Rossoneri have made an offer to the former striker but the giant Swede is delaying the answer, reportedly unhappy with the contract conditions proposed by Milan.
At this point Boban and Maldini are starting to look around for alternatives. Piatek and Rafael Leao have failed to find the back of the net with regularity forcing the club to intervene on the market for a new striker.
Real Madrid outcast Luka Jovic is a strong candidate to take Ibra’s place for the remaining of the season. The former Eintracht Frankfurt star cost €60 million last summer but has been unable to repeat himself in Spain.
Real Madrid are open to a loan move and AC Milan have already contacted his agent. But Jovic is not the only Real Madrid striker offered to Milan. According to reports, Los Blancos have also offered Mariano Diaz to the Rossoneri. The former Lyon is also available on a permanent transfer.
The third option is Mario Mandzukic. At one point the Croatian star was AC Milan’s top choice for the attack before shifting their attention to Ibrahimovic. Juventus have placed Mandzukic on the market for a fee of around €10 million. Perhaps too much for a 33-year-old striker that hasn’t made a single appearances this season.
