According to the British outlet The Telegraph, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has accepted a move back to AC Milan declining offers from clubs in the UK such as Manchester United. The former Sweden striker just completed a two year contract with LA Galaxy in the US after scoring 52 goals in 56 games. Milan have been pursuing the striker after the failure of Piatek and Leao in front of goal this season, the striker is expected to join on an initial six month deal.
Ibrahimovic will join Milan on a bosman but will likely receive a huge contract based off all the rumours in circulation recently. The striker will likely earn anywhere between €5 and €10 million for the short stint with potential for renewal.
