Milan deny claims of Zlatan’s second coming.AC Milan have ruled out the possibility of former star Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to the club this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The 31-year-old spent two successful years in red and black but was offloaded to PSG last summer for €20 million.
Ibrahimovic is currently helping the big spending Parisians towards winning the Ligue 1 title for the first time since 1994 and Milan vice-president, Alberto Galliani, has said that the Italian giants would not be able to afford him again.
“A return for Ibrahimovic does not seem possible as his salary demands are too high,” he said, “He is a professional. We were sad to sell him but he earns the kind of money that is not compatible with our finances.”
The financial package required to keep a player like Ibrahimovic tied to a long term contract would be astronomical, but Galliani’s comments suggest that Milan are having greater financial difficulties than they’re letting on.
The Swedish international made 85 appearances during his two spells in Milan, scoring 56 goals and creating 27 assists. He played a key role in winning a Scudetto and Supercoppa Italiana double in 2011.
However, when asked if The Rossoneri would ever go back for Brazilian defender, Thiago Silva again, Galliani said; “Would I re-sign him or Thiago Silva? The team who concedes fewer goals wins the Scudetto.”
