AC Milan Make A Firm Contract Offer To Zlatan Ibrahimović

AC Milan have entered into talks to sign former striker Zlatan Ibrahimović in January, according to Calciomercato.

Sky Sports and the Guardian reporter Fabrizio Romano previously suggested that the 37-year-old Swede's representatives and the Italian club both have a 'firm interest' in making the deal happen.

Calciomercato has since added that one of its 'transfer experts,' Daniele Longo, has reported that I Rossoneri have made contact with Ibrahimović's agent, Mino Raiola.

It was rumoured last month that the former Barcelona and Inter Milan star could make a move back to the San Siro.

The LA Galaxy forward has had a flying start to life in the MLS, having made 27 appearances and scoring 22 times.

Before the playoffs with the Californian-based side, Ibrahimović responded to speculation that linked him with a move back to Old Trafford and a reunion with United manager José Mourinho.

"I think I'm in a situation where I need to have a good balance between work and rest," he said. "Because I came back from injury and because of my age and the load I'm putting in during training.

"It's not what I have been thinking about because we still have two games, hopefully we make the playoffs."

AC are fourth place in Serie A after a late victory against Udinese over the weekend. Gennaro Gattuso's side are four points behind Napoli and Inter Milan, along with ten points behind league leaders Juventus.

Should Zlatan return to AC?
