It seems that’s passed and now we are just left with constant updates which don’t really tell us anything, so at least he seems to have confirmed which league he will be going to.

The return to AC Milan does make the most sense. He was a hero there before, the fans were furious when the board decided to ship him off to PSG and they are really struggling just now. It would allow Zlatan to return and go out as a hero at one of his most prestigious former clubs.
Despite that, the rumours of moving to Bologna won’t seem to go away. He doesn’t have any prior connection with the club, but he does maintain a close friendship with their manager Sinisa Mihajlovic which could entice him to the club.
It doesn’t do him any harm to keep himself in the news just now, but there’s only so many hints you can drop before people will start to ignore them. It seems we know what league he’s going to, now we just need to know which club.
