Zlatan Ibrahimovic has sensationally decided to leave AC Milan less than three months after re-joining the club.
Ibrahimovic is set to leave Milan on a free transfer at the end of June, with the striker unhappy about the recent sacking of chief football officer Zvonimir Boban.
Boban had been instrumental in bringing Ibrahimovic back to Milan, where he initially played between 2010 and 2012.
The departure of Boban convinced Ibrahimovic to leave at the end of this season as opposed to 2021.
According to Sport Mediaset, Ibrahimovic’s decision is irrevocable and will take Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis by surprise.
Upon his return to Milan Ibrahimovic will formally communicate his decision to Gazidis, who had a falling out with Boban.
Ibrahimovic has scored four goals in 10 appearances since returning to Milan in January following his departure from LA Galaxy.
According to sources close to Ibrahimovic, the experienced striker is no longer convinced by Milan’s project and had been mulling over the decision for several days.
Gennaro Gattuso, who played with Ibrahimovic during his first stint at Milan, would like to bring the 38-year-old to Napoli.
However, there is a possibility that Ibrahimovic could bring his lengthy playing career to a close and commence a new journey as a manager.
