With Investcorp looking to complete the purchase of Milan within the next couple of weeks, one of the club’s big names, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will see his contract running out in June 2022.
As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Investcorp could offer Ibrahimovic a new deal at Milan. But they will reportedly do so after considering two aspects, one of which is the former Manchester United man’s salary. The 40-year-old will have to reduce his salary and take a massive pay cut.
Furthermore, the soon-to-be new owners of the Rossoneri will understandably seek assurance about the player’s fitness. They need him to be in an acceptable physical condition. Driven by the humungous fan following and stardom of the Swede, the Bahrain-based firm seems tempted to keep Ibrahimovic at the club.
Meanwhile, a potential takeover is getting closer with every passing day, with reports claiming that the deal would cost the suitors a jaw-dropping amount of €1billion.
