Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been offered to his former club AC Milan for a staggering €1million a game, according to a report in Italy.
La Repubblica report that the 35-year-old former Manchester United forward could be in line for a return with the Rossoneri, as long as they are prepared to meet his agent’s demands.
The Swedish striker won the Serie A title in 2011, and scored 42 Serie A goals in two seasons and remains a firm favourite in Lombardy.
Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola has been trying to find a new home for the striker, who scored 28 goals and claimed 10 assists in 46 appearances last season.
The player though suffered an ACL tear in April which ended his season and United declined to renew the 12-month contract he signed last summer.
United boss Jose Mourinho claimed this week that Ibrahimovic’s return to United was very much a possibility, once he is fit.
“Maybe he’ll stay with us,” Mourinho told Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset. “He has no contract but he is closer to Manchester.”
However, Raiola is reported to have offered a the bizarre deal to Milan: wages of €1million from January to June 2018, but €1million (before tax) for every game started.
Milan director Marco Fassone has said that “one should never say never [to returns], maybe some old acquaintances could come back, but I don’t want to hint at Ibra”.
It does however look a long-shot from Raiola, who has also seen Los Angeles Galaxy place £6million-a-year deal on the table for Ibrahimovic to move to MLS.
