Zlatan Ibrahimovic will see his contract come to an end at the Los Angeles Galaxy and the current reports indicate that he could be on his way to AC Milan in Italy.
With clubs like Manchester United also looking to sign the big Swed in the sport to get goals and compete both domestically and in Europe, will Ibrahimovic really end up at AC Milan?
While speaking to Spanish outlet Marca recently, Maldini seems not to believe that the big forward Zlatan will sign with his old side AC Milan if it means that he will be coming off the bench.
Paolo Maldini has admitted that he doesn’t expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return to AC Milan if it means sitting on the bench every week.
“Bringing Ibrahimovic back is a dream, but he might be scared that we won’t see a dominant Ibra anymore,” the AC Milan technical director told Sky Italia.
“I remember when[Carlo] Ancelotti left me on the bench in a derby and I understood that I wasn’t in my best moment.
“I don’t know if he would accept this, sitting on the bench.”
The 38 year old has been such a journey man moving from one club to another. This would be his second spell at the San Siro based side should he decide to move back.
Zlatan who won the Italian Series A with the side in the 2010-2011 season before leaving to join Paris Saint Germain in France in the 2012 season.
The Swed has played fro a number of Italian sides during his younger days. He played for the Old Lady of Juventus where became so popular playing alongside David Trezeguet from which he went on to join Inter Milan with whom he won 3 Italian Series A titles.
Currently one of the most revered forwards in the Major League Soccer, Ibrahimovic has helped LA Galaxy to huge milestones.
The big question for everyone will be if Ibrahimovic will join Manchester United or will he be going back to AC Milan to save his side that is currently having the worst form in the Italian Series A.
