Zlatan Ibrahimovic agent Mino Raiola has arrived in Milan today and will meet with Rossoneri sporting director Leonardo.
Decisive hours for the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to AC Milan. Il Corriere della Sera reveals that in the next few hours Mino Riola is expected to land in Milan. An arrival accelerated mainly by the injury of Giacomo Bonaventura forced to undergo surgery but that could also be useful to close a deal for the Swedish giant.
“I adore Ibrahimovic“, declared in the morning Rossoneri president Paolo Scaroni. “He will be free to choose his new team. He is a fantastic player, as a fan I love him for the height combined with agility. However i’m not the one who makes the decisions on the market. And my favorite player in absolute already plays for us: Suso“.
During the day, reports the newspaper, an important meeting is scheduled between the well-known agent and the Brazilian executive. Contacts between the parties have been intense in recent weeks. There is only one node to solve. AC Milan are offering a six-month contract with a renewal option for another 12 months. Raiola and Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, want a straight 18-month contract. The salary issue is not a problem.
The number one danger of Zlatan is his old teammate Alexandre Pato. Seemingly tired of the Chinese adventure, Pato could be a low-cost solution if he succeeds to terminate his contract with Tianjin.
The 29 year old striker is much younger that Ibrahimovic and in his two years in China has never had a physical problems. The duck could be the right name to preserve the balance of the dressing room. In fact, Pato would have many less claims than Ibra, an eventual way to protect an asset like Patrick Cutrone. In the end, Elliott Management Corporation will weigh the situations and decide.
