Zlatan Ibrahimovic Set To Make A Sensational Return To AC Milan
Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on the verge of completing his sensational return to AC Milan, according to reports in Italy.
The 38-year-old striker left LA Galaxy in November and has been heavily linked with Serie A sides Bologna and Napoli.
According to Sky Sport Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, Ibrahimovic has said 'yes' to a move back to the San Siro.
The Italian side plans to 'define and close every detail' of his deal tonight and tomorrow ahead of an official announcement.
Ibrahimovic moved to Milan on loan in 2010 after his relationship with Pep Guardiola deteriorated at Barcelona.
The ex-Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain star would make the move permanent after his initial season-long loan.
Ibrahimovic made 85 appearances and scored an impressive 56 times in his two seasons with Milan.

MLS commissioner Don Garber had hinted in November that Ibrahimovic would be heading back to the San Siro after his spell with LA Galaxy.
He told ESPN: "Zlatan is an interesting character. He's a thrill a minute. You need to have those guys that are breaking through like David Beckham did.
"A 38-year-old guy, who is now being recruited by AC Milan, one of the top clubs in the world.
"He's almost set records with how many goals he's scored over the last two years. He's exciting on and off the field, he certainly keeps our hands full!
"At the end of the day, I'd love to see him back, but that's going to be up to LA Galaxy."
Ibrahimovic's last match in an LA Galaxy shirt ended in a 5-3 defeat to fierce rivals Los Angeles in the MLS Western Conference play-off semi-final.
The Swedish striker, who scored and assisted in El Trafico, savagely responded to a heckling fan after the full-time whistle.
Ibrahimovic announced his departure from LA Galaxy with a brilliant farewell message on social media.
