After months of speculation, it appears Zlatan Ibrahimovic has found a new home — back in Italy.
Sky Sports Italy reports an official announcement is expected either Thursday or Friday.
Ibrahimovic scored 52 goals in 56 regular season MLS games and earned MLS Best XI honors in both 2018 and 2019.
Ibrahimovic, who also played for Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, spent two seasons with AC Milan, from 2010-2012. He scored 42 goals in 61 games, helping lead the club to the Scudetto title — their last to date — as well as the Italian Super Cup crown. He led Serie A in scoring with 28 goals in 32 matches in 2011-12.
Milan are currently 11th in the Serie A table following a 5-0 defeat to Atalanta last weekend, the club’s most lopsided league defeat in 21 years.
