Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will turn 40 in October, is “very close” to extending his contract with AC Milan, according to Paolo Maldini, the Rossoneri’s technical director.
In January 2020, “Ibra,” the Rossoneri’s top scorer this season with 15 goals in 16 league games, returned to Milan. Despite missing many games due to injury, he was a key figure in the Lombard club’s comeback, which saw them win the winter championship in January and remain in contention for the Champions League (2nd).
He’s under contract until the end of the current season, and a one-year extension until June 2022 is being discussed.
Despite his age, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has shown an insatiable appetite since his return to Lombardy, even finding the Swedish national team at the end of March, nearly five years after his departure, and will be one of the spearheads at the Euros (June 11-July 11).
Negotiations for the extension of Italian international goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s contract, which expires in June, are, on the other hand, less advanced, according to Maldini, who stressed that “it takes two to close a deal.”
