Zlatan Ibrahimovic ’won’t remain at AC Milan’ with fourth Serie A club possible

Zlatan Ibrahimovic won’t stay at AC Milan beyond the end of the Serie A season, according to Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic. And the Serbian has admitted he’d love to take the striker to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara this summer. Should that happen they would become the fourth Serie A club of the forward’s glittering career.

Ibrahimovic returned to Milan back in December after leaving LA Galaxy on a free transfer.

The Sweden international had been a huge hit the MLS, scoring 53 goals in 58 games upon leaving Manchester United – who he’d won the EFL Cup and Europa League with.

Ibrahimovic has scored four goals from 10 games for Milan since returning to the San Siro, despite the 38-year-old approaching the twilight years of his career.

But he’s now been tipped to leave the club by Mihajlovic, who wants to bring the striker to Bologna.

“He called me a few days ago and we’ll see what he decides to do in the summer,” told Serbian show Vece sa Ivanom Ivanovicem.
