Zlatan Ibrahimovic's impressive form has convinced Milan's management to offer him a new contract, Fabrizio Romano wrote in his weekly column for CBS Sports. The 39-year-old striker has 16 goals in 17 games in all competitions this season and is undoubtedly the leader in the team of Stefano Pioli.
The directors of Milan hope that the striker will lead the team on his expected return to the Champions League next season. Ibrahimovic himself has not recorded a match in the tournament for five years, when he wore the team of Paris Saint-Germain. His contract with the Serie A leader expires at the end of the season and it is not yet clear whether the veteran will be willing to renew it. He has repeatedly said that when he returned to Giuseppe Meazza a year ago, he was offered an 18-month contract, but the player only asked for the agreement to be for only 6 months. Zlatan also repeatedly admitted that last summer he wanted to give up football so that he could return to his family in Sweden, but he was still persuaded by Pioli to re-sign for this campaign as well.
Now, most likely, everyone in the club will again make efforts to persuade him to continue his stay in the Milan giants.
