WOW!! See The Club Zlatan Ibrahimovic Almost Joined Before AC Milan Return

Zlatan Ibrahimovic held transfer talks with Leeds United before opting for a move back to Serie A with AC Milan, according to the Championship club’s owner Andrea Radrizzani.

The 38-year-old became available after deciding to leave MLS side the LA Galaxy at the end of their season and eventually signed a six-month deal with Milan – including an option to extend by a year.

Ibrahimovic’s future was uncertain for nearly two months before deciding on his Italy return, with Radrizzani revealing he had discussions with the former Manchester United star to bring him back to England to spearhead Leeds’ push for Premier League promotion.

The Italian owner also mentioned the club making a play for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani – who decided to remain in the French capital.

“I spoke with Zlatan Ibrahimovic more concretely”, Radrizzani told Sky in Italy’s Gianluca Di Marzio.

“He could have given us that decisive push but he decided to go to AC Milan. He has been very honest and transparent with me.

“We need to be rational and coherent with the strategy of both coach and team. I did not even speak with [coach] Marcelo Bielsa about Cavani and Ibrahimovic because we never got to the stage that we could sit down and talk about them.”
