Alright, this has gone on long enough.

Most Milan fans and, if reports are to be believed, the management at Milan want Zlatan Ibrahimovic back at the San Siro. Great, so either he’s gonna leave MLS and the LA Galaxy or he’s not. Simple, right?

Of course not.

The rumors have gone on for weeks, if not months, now, with various reports saying he’s staying or that he’s going, blah, blah, blah.

Listen, if Zlatan wants to come back to Milan, great. But seriously, this isn’t 2012 Zlatan, this is post-knee surgery Zlatan, and while he’s tore it up in MLS, so has Bradley Wright-Phillips, and I don’t see anyone clamoring for him to come to Italy. If Zlatan doesn’t come, Milan will just go out and buy someone else, whatever. The rumors have gone on long enough, it’s getting silly at this point.

On to the links.
