AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Club and the striker have agreed on a deal until the end of the current season with an option to extend the contract for the next one.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, born in Malmö (Sweden) on October 3, 1981, returns to AC Milan where he played a leading role in the Club’s history.
The striker played for AC Milan in the two-season 2010/11 and 2011/12 recording 85 appearances, 56 goals and significantly contributing to the achievement of the 18th Scudetto and the Italian Super Cup.
The 38-year-old had been a free agent since leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season last month.
He spent 18 months with the Galaxy and was named in the MLS Best XI in 2018 and 2019 after scoring a combined 53 goals.
Several clubs had been linked with the former Sweden international, including the likes of Fiorentina, Napoli, and Bologna, but he has decided on a return to San Siro.
The former Sweden international is happy to have signed a deal running until the end of the season, with the option to extend it into the 2020-21 campaign.
“I’m coming back to a club I hugely respect and to the city of Milan I love,” Ibrahimovic told Milan’s website.
“I’ll fight together with my team-mates to change the course of this season. I will do everything to make it happen.”
Ibrahimovic won the Serie A title during his previous two-season stint with Milan, which ended in July 2012 when he joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
