AC Milan's veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to the city at last. The 38 year old has been is Sweden for the duration of the coronavirus crisis where he has been training with Hammarby - who he co-owns. He is expected to go into a 14 day quarantine now. Ibrahimovic has played 10 matches this season scoring 4 goals and providing 1 assist in all competitions. He is five games away from his 100th match in a Milan shirt.

The attacker returning can be considered a strong indication that Serie A may resume in June as the attacker is only on a 6 month contract thus could have easily remained in Sweden if the season is to be called off. Only one Milan player is now abroad, Frank Kessie is stuck in Ivory Coast and will need to find a way to get to back to Italy soon.
