Zlatan Ibrahimovic will sign a one-year renewal of his contract with Milan next week. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 40-year-old Swedish striker has agreed with the Italian club that the final details will be finalized in the next few days.
Ibra’s presence in the campaign to showcase Milan’s new shirts as the current ‘scudetto’ champions achieved last season is the best indication that both sides are willing to continue linking for another season.
The previous contract expired on Friday, June 30, and Ibra has been a free player ever since, though there is no doubt about his continuation despite the fact that he underwent surgery on May 25 for an anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Low until the end of the year in the best cases
An injury that will prevent him from coming off the pitch between seven and eight months off, that is, until December or January, when he will be 41 years old, which he will be in October.
Thus, the new one -year contract will include a symbolic fixed portion, such as Ibra’s desire to reduce his salary to a minimum as he recovers, and another variable amount depending on the games he has played and the results that he got.
Despite the physical problems that hampered his performance, Ibra was key to Milan winning their first ‘scudetto’ since 2011 due to his influence and experience with a group full of young people. Club and coach Stefano Pioli appreciated the Swede’s ascendance in the locker room and agreed with his desire to extend his long career for another season.
