Serie A giants AC Milan are set to issue striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich a 1-year contract extension at the club ending 2022.
The former Manchester United forward joined the Italian side in December 2019 on a free transfer from American side LA Galaxy.
His impact has been felt at the club and various stakeholders who want him to stay one more season. This season alone, the 39-year-old has betted 17 goals across all competitions.

Between the years 2010 and 2012, he has managed to help AC Milan lift the Serie A trophy and the Italian Super Cup netting 56 goals from 85 matches played. His success saw Sweden recall him after 5-year absence from national duty.
Recently, the 39-year-old attracted criticism when he called out Lebron James for fighting injustices saying it does not suit him and instead focus on basketball.
In response to Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Lebron quoted a previous encounter that saw the former Manchester United striker claim racism from his national team due to his traditional Swedish name.
“He’s the guy who said in Sweden, he was talking about the same things, because his last name wasn’t a [traditional Swedish] last name, he felt like there was some racism going on. I speak from a very educated mind. I’m kind of the wrong guy to go at, because I do my homework.” Said Lebron
