Baku, April 10, AZERTAC
Reports emerging from Italy today claim Milan’s prospective buyers are already considering their options in the summer transfer market.
A consortium of Chinese investors are said to be behind a £730million takeover that could see them control a 75 per cent stake of the San Siro club.
And, with the added investment, manger Filippo Inzaghi looks set to be given hefty funds to boost Milan’s chances of finishing in Serie A’s Champions League places next season.
Inzaghi is already considering offers for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and Aleksander Mitrovic of Anderlecht - but Calciomercato claim Ibrahimovic’s arrival is part of a wider-scale move to attract more fans to the club.
The Sweden international, 33, made over 50 appearances for Milan between 2010 and 2012 before being sold to PSG for an estimated £15.7million three years ago.
The website claim Milan’s joint-CEO Adriano Galliani met with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, last month to discuss a potential move, which would scupper Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool’s hopes of signing the star.
The Premier League trio are all said to be trailing Ibrahimovic, with the aim of holding the iconic striker to a short-term contract.
They hope, much like Milan, to receive a boost in their commercial revenues from Ibrahimovic’s arrival as he nears the end of his playing career.
