Linked with a return to Milan: Ibrahimovic.

According to Tuttosport, AC Milan are set to compete with Manchester United for the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, once he recovers from his knee injury.

The Swedish striker played for two seasons with AC Milan (2010-12) and scored 51 goals in 77 appearances for the Rossoneri.

Ibrahimovic’s contract at Manchester United was not extended after he suffered a cruciate knee ligament damage in April, but he is expected to be fit by January of next season.

While Jose Mourinho’s team have strengthened up top with the acquisition of Romelu Lukaku from Everton for a £75million fee, Ibrahimovic could still turn out for the Red Devils.

Indeed, The Special One said recently that “the door is still open for him”.

Meanwhile, 35-year-old Zlatan turned down a deal to join LA Galaxy and play in the MLS but a move to Milan could still be on the cards.

Milan have been one of the most active clubs in the summer transfer window, making signings such as Leonardo Bonucci and Andre Silva among others.

What also makes Ibrahimovic to Milan more than a possibility is the fact that his agent, Mino Raiola is also Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s representative.
