Zlatan Ibrahimovic has finally signed a contract extension with his club. The AC Milan striker will stay till 2022 at San Siro now.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, who has also diligently covered AC Milan’s involvement with the failed Super League, tweeted the news:
Romano previously also confirmed, along with Football Chase, that Ibra agreed to sign a new contract with Milan. He reported that Paolo Maldini, a club legend, verified that the soon-to-be 40-year-old striker would stay.
Ibrahimovic signed a one-year contract extension at the San Siro which expires in June of next year. So, per the new deal, the AC Milan striker will stay till 2022.
The 39-year-old will earn around €7m per year (£5.94m per year/£114k per week). These being the same wages he agreed to for the current campaign, Ibra has thus agreed to stay with a raise in his salary.
Other AC Milan Players
Meanwhile, negotiations between AC Milan and Hakan Calhanoglu over a contract extension have stalled due to the midfielder’s wage demands.
The Turkey international is out of contract in the summer. So, Juventus may capitalize on this situation and would be interested in signing him on a free transfer.
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will also see his Milan contract expire in the summer. However, his negotiations with AC Milan over an extension are in process, yet to come to a standstill luckily.
