Despite turning 40 this year, Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is thinking about extending his stay at AC Milan beyond this season, with talks planned over a new contract.
The irrepressible Swedish striker joined Milan in December 2019, and signed a one-year extension last summer to carry on in Serie A for another season in 2020-21.
Injury has disrupted Ibrahimovic’s campaign, but that has not deterred the veteran striker from believing he can still compete in one of Europe’s top leagues into his forties after a return of 10 Serie A goals from just six starts this season.
“As long as I’m fine, I’ll go on,” Ibrahimovic said in an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
“My contract expires in June and we’ll talk about it.
“I didn’t want to get trapped in dead-end situations or even trap my club. That’s why I signed up for six months on arrival and then renewed. I am for the freedom of choice.”
