AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic is due to sign a one-year contract extension.
The 39-year-old is eager to prolong his tenure at the San Siro for another season and has reached an agreement in principle on a new contract, according to Sky in Italy, and is scheduled to sign over the next seven to ten days.
Ibrahimovic would raise around €7 million a year (£5.94 million a year/£114,500 a week), which is the same salary he committed to for this season.
He has 15 league goals this season to help Milan mount an unexpected title challenge, and he has also returned to the Swedish national team after a five-year absence.
However, contract extension talks between Milan and Hakan Calhanoglu have failed due to the midfielder’s salary demands.
The Turkey international’s deal expires in the summer, and Sky Italia reports that Juventus are interested in signing him on a free transfer.
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s deal with Milan expires in the summer, and talks for an extension are ongoing.
Milan is second in Serie A, eight points behind Inter Milan despite having played one more game.
