Having spent two years with AC Milan between the summers of 2010 and 2012, Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to the seven-time European champions this winter at the age of 38, feeling he could still help the club in a moment of crisis. In the meantime, he had spells with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and LA Galaxy.
His current contract with the Rossoneri is set to last only this season, but the club’s technical director Paolo Maldini has revealed, as quoted by Sky Sports, that Milan have the option of extending it automatically by 12 months. The Swede made his second debut for the club in the 0-0 draw against Sampdoria, and re-opened his scoring account the following week in a 0-2 win away to Cagliari. He has so far started six games and scored twice.
It is obvious that at this age the striker’s pace isn’t what it used to be, but his silky touch combined with considerable strength and aerial prowess makes him a formidable opponent for any defender still.
