Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently in-between clubs due to an injury sustained in the spring that has ruled him out until Christmas. Manchester United have not made a move to sign Zlatan, but have admitted that they remain interested, while the Swedish striking legend trains with the club on trial until he finds a suitor.

That suitor? It could be AC Milan. The Telegraph have the full story, but here’s a snippet:

‘It is understood the Italian club are considering a move for Ibrahimovic, who scored 56 goals in 85 games at the San Siro between 2010-12, the first season of which was on loan from Barcelona.’

Zlatan would certainly solve Milan’s striking issue - with every single signing falling apart up front apart from the Andre Silva deal. Thankfully, Patrick Cutrone has come good and could do a job for Milan until Zlatan returns to fitness, that’s if he returns to Milan at all.
