Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to exit AC Milan this summer, per reports in Italy. The former Sweden international joined in January but he has only managed to score four goals after 11 matches. His return to Italy has not yielded the expected returns. Despite rumours of a new one-year deal, the club has opted not to move forward with the player.

Ibrahimovic would now move to Swedish outfit Hammarby when his current deal with Milan lapses by the end of August. The club would appreciate the exposure from Ibra joining and would accommodate the star player until he retires.

Already 38, he would add a year when the time he joins Hammarby so playing until 40 is feasible. He is one of the most decorated active football players on Earth. His resume includes Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan, PSG, Manchester United, MLS side LA Galaxy etc.
During football suspension in Italy due to Covid-19, he picked up a calf injury, but he is fully recovered now, featuring in the 2-2 draw against bottom-placed SPALin the Serie A on Wednesday. Milan are seventh on the log and there is a limited chance they make Europe next season. AS Roma and Napoli, both on 48 points, are in fifth and sixth jostling for any point in the rest of the eight games left. Atalanta has broken away with 63 points in fourth place so Milan’s Europe dreams are only dreams.
This makes the chance of Zlatan remaining into next season not feasible. The player who dubbed himself ‘god’ would have to say goodbye to football at top clubs and start planning his retirement. It has been an illustrious and rewarding ride.
