AC Milan and Sweden striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to put pen to paper on a new one-year contract with AC Milan.
The Sweden international has agreed to extend his current deal with the Rossoneri, with an announcement due later on Thursday
The contract, worth around €6 million (£5m/$7m) a year plus €1m in additional bonuses, is due to be announced by the club according to reports.
Super striker Ibrahimovic 39, has been one of Milan’s top performers during the 2020-2021 campaign and seemingly still has a lot to offer, regardless of the fact that he will turn 40 later this year.
Ibrahimovic who joined the Rossoneri in December 2019 on a free transfer will now extend his stay with Milan for at least another season.
Milan has already teased the announcement via their social channels, with a Twitter post showing their television studio accompanied by the text: “what’s happening?” and an hour-glass emoji.
Ibrahimovic initially only arrived at a six-month contract when he signed for Milan in 2019. However, his performances in that short period that saw him score 10 goals in 18 league games convinced the club to offer him an extension. The 39-year-old has continued to impress the Rossoneri, scoring 15 goals in just 17 Serie A games in what has been an injury-disrupted campaign.
Speaking back in March, Ibrahimovic stated he will like to remain at the club. He told Rai Play:
“Let’s see [about a renewal].
“If [Milan technical director] Paolo [Maldini] wants, I am up for it. When I spend a day without them [my team-mates], it’s like one without my children.”
