The former AC Milan, PSG and Manchester United striker’s current contract with MLS side LA Galaxy is set to expire at the end of this year.

MLS Commissioner Don Graber has claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is going to sign for AC Milan seven years after the striker left the Serie A club.

The Swedish superstar, who is currently playing for MLS side LA Galaxy, will become a free agent once his current contract with the side expires at the end of this year.

The 38-year-old striker will be saying goodbye to the United States after enjoying two highly productive seasons during which he managed to score 53 goals in just 58 appearances.

Perhaps that’s the reason why AC Milan are ready to take a chance on the striker who left them to join French powerhouses Paris Saint-Germain in 2012, as per the MLS Commissioner.

While speaking to ESPN on Thursday evening, Don Graber revealed that the imposing Swede is going back to Milan seven years after his first spell at the San Siro.

‘A 38-year-old guy, who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world,’ Graber said while speaking to ESPN [via the Daily Mail].

The MLS Commissioner also paid tribute to the number of goals Zlatan has scored stateside during his two-year association with LA Galaxy.

‘He’s almost set records with how many goals he’s scored over the last two years.

‘At the end of the day I’d love to see him back but that’s going to be up to LA Galaxy.’


Will Zlatan prove to be a good signing for Milan?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined the Rossoneri on loan from Barcelona in 2010 before making his move to the San Siro permanent a year later.

His 2-year association with the Italian giants was highly successful both for himself and the club, as the Swede’s 56 goals in 85 games helped Milan win the 2010/11 Serie A and 2011 Supercoppa Italiana titles.

Prior to his association with Milan, Zlatan spent two years with Juventus, three with Inter and two with Spanish giants Barcelona. His departure from Milan saw the 38-year-old playing for four years in France before a two-year stint in Manchester paved the way for his move to LA Galaxy.

Consequently, looking at the stature of the clubs he has played for throughout his trophy-laden career and his immediate form in the US, one could expect that even if he plays a bit-part role for AC Milan from the bench, Ibrahimovic could still score plenty of goals for the club.
