Milan News' Antonio Vitiello revealed that Ibrahimović's agent, Mino Raiola, had visited the club's headquarters for a four-hour-long meeting. It is believed that the former Swedish international was the 'central theme' of the conversation.
Ibrahimović recently revealed that his time in Serie A was an important point in his career, specifically during his two-season spell at Juventus.
"In the beginning, it was not about scoring goals, it was about who had the best skills, the best technique and I brought that with me wherever I went," he told BBC Sport.
"A certain point came when it was: 'Listen, this is high level, you need to perform, you are a striker you need to give us goals and if you don't score I don't need you.'
"That changed when I came to Juventus. Everything was new for me. I was like, 'Wow, big club, big players, big coach, big history.'
"From the first day after training, I heard [then coach] Fabio Capello scream 'Ibra!' and he just pointed. He had taken guys from the academy and youth team and I trained with them. They gave crosses and I scored.
"Every day for 30 minutes sometimes I just wanted to go home because I was tired and did not want to shoot any more -- I didn't want to see the goal or the goalkeeper. I would just hear 'Ibra!' and I knew what it was. I was shooting, just shooting, good shots, bad shots.
"In the end, I became a machine, in front of goal, score a goal, especially in Italy as a striker it is the most difficult position because they are so tactically good."
How many times will Ibrahimović score if he returns to Milan?
