Monza Inch Closer to Securing Ibrahimovic Signature

Milan veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic has rarely made the headlines in recent weeks or months, except perhaps from his return in February. However, things have not gone as planned for the Swede, with successive hamstring and calf injuries marring his return to first team football.

With his contract expiry date approaching at the end of the season, there is no indication that Ibra will stay put.

However, he might as well be handed a lifeline by Monza, who have secured a historic safety in their maiden top-flight season. As per Foot Mercato, there is a verbal agreement between Ibrahimovic and Monza patrons Adriano Galliani and Silvio Berlusconi – two former Rossoneri chiefs whose presence have proved ever so substantial in the 41-year-old’s career.

The Biancorossi executives were instrumental in the Swede’s decision to join Milan back in 2010/11.

With Ibra’s recurring injuries and fitness problems, Milan are unlikely to offer him an extension deal similar to the one Olivier Giroud received. Ibrahimovic has appeared just four times this season for the Rossoneri, scoring one goal in the process.
