Despite being 38 years old, Zlatan could be one of the most coveted free agents available during the January transfer market.

The Swedish star has been out of contract since the end of the 2019 MLS season, where he featured for Los Angeles Galaxy. Zlatan scored 53 goals in 58 appearances for the California-based franchise, but he chose to move elsewhere after the recent season came to an end.

Several experts believe Zlatan is “too old” to return to Europe. But he knows he can still play at the level. Zlatan itself said he wants to join a team with ambitions, and several squads have already expressed interest to acquire him. Napoli, Tottenham and Manchester United were all mentioned as potential destinations for the Swede. Bologna were also linked with a push for the veteran striker. However, another team has emerged as favourite.

Zlatan will probably return to AC Milan. In fact, several sites have already reported both parties have agreed to a deal. And while Milan do not qualify as a team “with ambitions”, they certainly need someone like Ibrahimovic upfront.

And the fact that Zlatan would fit greatly at San Siro wouldn’t hurt either.

Milan are in 11th place of the Serie A standings with 17 points. They sit eight behind the top four as they chase a return to the Champions League under recently-appointed Stefano Pioli. In order to do that, however, they need to boost their attack. Krzysztof Piątek has not been able to make an impact upfront. Zlatan would represent a massive upgrade over the current in-house options.

This would be Zlatan’s fourth stint in the Serie A. He already played for Inter Milan, Juventus and Milan, but all signs point towards him moving to San Siro.

“I will go to a team that needs to start winning again, that needs to renew it’s history,” Ibrahimovic said. “I’ll see you soon in Italy,” he finished.

Everybody is eagerly waiting for his return to the Serie A.
