AC Milan ‘want to announce the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at their 120th-anniversary celebrations on December 15.’
The 38-year-old Ibrahimovic, who played for the club on loan from Barcelona in 2010-11 before signing permanently, is a free agent after leaving MLS side LA Galaxy.
And Milan are hopeful he will favour sentiment over money and decide on a second stint at the San Siro, though talks ‘still have some way to go.’
Corriere della Sera newspaper claim that Milan’s hierarchy will give the Swedish striker suitable time to respond.
But they hope he will give them an answer in order to be guest of honour at a party celebrating 120 years since the club’s foundation.
They would offer Ibrahimovic an 18-month contract but that would include a break clause at the end of the season.
Tuttosport say the caveat would allow the striker to walk away if, for instance, Milan failed to qualify for European competition next season.
