Only this morning (Thursday) Zlatan Ibrahimovic complimented his Milan coach, Stefano Fioli, and as usual on the road also complimented himself when he said “I am said to be old and tired, but I just warm up, I will never grow old”, and probably did not happen. According to the Italian media tonight, the 38-year-old Swedish giant is expected to remain in the team next season as well.
Ibrahimovic, who starred with a duo and cooking yesterday in Milan’s 1-4 win over Sampdoria, a win that secured them a place in the Europa League next season and extended the club’s best run in seven years, is expected to extend his contract at the club Gazzetta dello Sport And will discuss next week, after the end of the season, his financial terms.
According to Gazzetta, Ibrahimovic will ask for around four million euros in base salary for the next season, but the contract is expected to increase significantly depending on bonuses such as the team’s achievements, personal performance and the team’s success in the league and in Europe.
As a reminder, “Ibra” returned to Milan last December after starring in the United States, on a six-month contract for only three million euros in order to close the circle and bring the team back to the media. He starred between 2010 and 2012. When he arrived, AC Milan were only 11th and conceded 5-0 to Atalanta in the last game before the announcement of his return, but have since turned the bowl upside down – with Ibrahimovic making a significant contribution that is not measured by just nine goals and five assists in 17 rounds.
