MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan’s veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not yet recovered from his injury over the course of the international break hence is set to miss out on the game this weekend against Hellas Verona at home. Milan return on Saturday night following the break but the striker has still been training on his own as of Tuesday thus will unlikely join the group in time for that fixture. The striker is dealing with his Achilles issue which has limited him to just one appearance thus far this season where he scored one goal.

A separate report from MilanNews.it suggests that his future at the club beyond this summer depends on his physical fitness above all else as he receives a massive salary but the return on the pitch has dropped due to the recurring injuries over the past twelve months. Off the pitch he still contributes a lot to the group.
